The Annual Eeport of "Bank Debits to Individual Accounts 
and Equation of Exchange, 1941" is available for distribution. 
A table showing debits by each of the clearing centres from 1924 
to the present is included. The relative position, the trend and 
fluctuation of the debits in the principal centres are portrayed in 
the charts. The relation of the country-wide total of the national 
income to the terms of the equation of exchange is an interesting 
topic of the Bulletin. 

Canada 1942, an Official Handbook, covers the present situation 
in the Dominion from Atlantic to Pacific, the weight of emphasis 
being placed on those aspects w r hich are currently of most importance. 
So far as space permits, all phases of the country's economic 
organization are dealt with and statistics are brought up to the 
latest possible moment. The text is accompanied by a wealth of 
illustrative matter which adds to the interest of the subjects treated. 

The Introduction reviews Canada's war effort, covering the 
development of her armed forces, the financial steps that have been 
taken and the governmental organizations that have been created 
and their principal activities. It also reviews Canada's economic 
condition at the close of 1941. This Introduction is followed by a 
special article dealing with Canada's Attractions for the Vacationist, 
which is accompanied by a four-page scenic insert in colour. 

The economic survey is covered in seventeen chapters dealing 
with population, production, trade, manufactures, transportation, 
labour, finance, education, etc. 

The price of the publication is 25 cents per copy; application 
for regular priced copies should be made to the KING'S PRINTER, 
OTTAWA. 

A special price concession has been authorized in the case of 
teachers, bona fide students, and ministers of religion. To such 
individuals, the price is set at 10 cents for one copy. 

Application for copies under this Special Distribution should be 
addressed to the DOMINION STATISTICIAN, OTTAWA. 



MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 

Vol. XVII OTTAWA, JANUARY, 1942 i 

Acting Dominion Statistician: S. A. Cudmore, M.A. (Oxon.), F.S.S., F.R.S.C. 
Chief, General Statistics Branch: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN DECEMBER 

An average of 6 major factors indicating the trend of economic conditions 
averaged higher in 1941 than in any other year since 1929. New high records 
were established by the index of the physical volume of business and in the 
sum of the notice and demand deposits of the chartered banks. High-grade 
bond prices remained steady throughout the year, showing a moderate rise in 
November. The level was slightly in advance of the inter-war trend. Whole- 
sale prices showed a considerable advance throughout the greater part of 1941, 
averaging higher than in any year since 1929. The reaction of the speculative 
factors including the prices of common stocks traded on Canadian exchanges 
and the volume of speculative trading tended to temper the high standing in 
other sectors of the economy. 

The change during the last month of the year in the six above-mentioned 
factors was of moderate proportions. Increase in the sum of the notice and 
demand deposits and in the physical volume of business compares with minor 
declines in other sections. The preliminary index of the physical volume of 
business recorded an increase in December, following the recession of the two 
preceding months. A few factors may be cited in this connection. The index 
of coal production after seasonal adjustment recorded an increase from 110 in 
November to 118 in the last month of the year. The index of tobacco releases 
including cigars and cigarettes rose from 147 to 160-5. An index of the output 
of manufactured goods based on animal products was nearly 180 in December, 
compared with 162 in the preceding month. The recession in cheese production 
was far less than normal for the season and some increase was shown in butter 
production after the usual adjustment. An index of inspected slaughterings, 
indicating conditions in the meatpacking industry, advanced 2 points to 157. 
Some recession was shown in the amount of cotton used by textile industries. 
The index of forestry production was more than 4 points higher at 127-5. 
War Contracts and Construction 

Preliminary figures released by the Department of Munitions and Supply 
show that the total value of contracts awarded and commitments made by the 
Department up to the end of 1941 was in excess of $3,200,000,000. Expendi- 
tures on Canadian account totalled $1,754,000,000, with the aggregate commit- 
ments on United Kingdom account amounting to $1,315,000,000. Contracts 
awarded on "other accounts" totalled $132,000,000. 

The large part played by the Commonwealth Air Training Plan in Cana- 
dian war industry is shown by the fact that $344,000,000, or nearly 20 p.c. 
of the total expenditure on Canadian account, has been spent on aircraft. A 
portion of this is chargeable to other Empire countries. Expenditures of 
$232,000,000 indicate that the Canadian shipbuilding programme is now well 
under way. Over $225,000,000 has gone into the production of ordnance stores, 
which include small arms and a wide range of military equipment. Other 
principal items of expenditure have been construction and defence projects, 
clothing, and land transport. 

During 1941, the contracts awarded on Canadian account were reasonably 
well distributed over the twelve months, although a marked peak was recorded 
in April and May. This general level was well above the 1940 average, but 
still far below the record established for the last three months of that year. 
Total contracts awarded for 1941 are tentatively given at $860,000,000 as 
compared with $797,000,000 in 1940. Many more contracts were awarded in 
1941 than during the preceding year, but their average value has declined, due 
to the large number of small contracts being placed by local purchasing offices. 

Construction contracts awarded during December showed a moderate 
seasonal recession, the total amounting to $19,109,900. This figure, however,

January, 1942 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 5 

was nearly 13 p.c. higher than the total of $16, 918,300 recorded for December, 
1940. Contracts awarded in Quebec and Ontario accounted for over 60 p.c. 
of the total, with considerable activity in Nova Scotia and British Columbia 
also being noted. Industrial construction was approximately 45 p.c. of the 
aggregate. Placements during 1941 were $393,991,300 against $346,010,200 
in the preceding year. 

Transportation 

Railway transportation remained very active during December. Total 
carloadings for the four weeks ended December 27 stood at 236,343 as compared 
with 273,662 for the four weeks ended November 29. The recession, however, 
was distinctly less than normal for the season. The total for the corresponding 
period of 1940 was 216,872, a gain of nearly 10 p.c. being indicated. 

Grain shipments remained at a high level during the month under review, 
although falling off considerably from the total for November. Little change 
was recorded from the corresponding period of 1940. Loadings of coal took 
second place during December, with total shipments likewise falling off some- 
what from November and differing little from December, 1940. Ore shipments 
showed a seasonal recession from November, but were rather heavier than for 
the corresponding period last year. Loadings of pulp and paper actually 
recorded a small gain over November, and were at a much higher level than in 
December, 1940. Lumber shipments fell off somewhat from the preceding 
month, but were considerably higher than for the same period of 1940. The 
level of loadings for other forest products, including pulpwood, showed little 
difference from November, but fell off somewhat as compared with 1940. The 
amount of merchandise shipped in less than carload lots was rather lower than 
in November, though higher than in the same period of the preceding year. 
External Trade 

Domestic exports from Canada during December, 1941 were valued at 
$150,472,000. This represented slight falling off from the peak reached in 
November, but was over 50 p.c. higher than the figure of $97,621,000 recorded 
in December, 1940. Domestic exports to the United Kingdom were $48,417,000, 
nearly 60 p.c. above the total for the same month of 1940. 

Shipments to the United States totalled $62,101,000 an increase of more 
than 40 p.c. over the same period of the preceding year. The level of shipments 
to Egypt continued high, exports to the country being almost three times the 
total for December, 1940. 

The expansion over December of last year was shared by all the principal 
exports, but the greatest advances were recorded by crop and animal products. 
Domestic exports in these classes rose by 89 -8 p.c. and by 69-6 p.c, respectively. 
Wood and paper products, iron and steel, and non-ferrous metals all recorded 
substantial gains over December, 1940, with a marked increase being noted in 
chemicals. The largest single factor, however, in the increase over December, 
1940 seems undoubtedly the increased export of foodstuffs, primarily to 
Great Britain. 
Bond Financing 

During December, the only government bonds issued were municipal, and 
for relatively small amounts. This contrasted with December, 1940 when 
Dominion Government bonds were issued to the value of $250,000,000. Issues 
of treasury bills totalled $90,000,000, as compared with $75,000,000 for the 
same month last year. Refundings amounted to $75,000,000, with $15,000,000 
of new money being thus created by the bills. 

Issues of government bonds during 1941 showed a slight increase over 
1940, rising from $1,366,516,631 to $1,375,419,372. A considerable gain was 
recorded by Dominion Government issues, but this was nearly offset by a 
marked recession in provincial bonds. Refunding during the vear totalled 
$619,782,300, the new purchasing power being $755,637,172. Treasury bills 
to the value of $960,000,000 were issued, the corresponding figure for 1940 
being $900,000,000. Total refundings of Treasury bills were $920,000,000, 
$40,000,000 of new purchasing power being created.

Issues of corporation bonds were valued at $17,739,000 for 1941, as com- 
pared with $27,083,800 for 1940. A decline was noted in public utilities issues. 
Refundings during the year were only $3,954,800, new funds to the value of 
$13,284,200 being put into circulation. 
National Income Payments 

The flow of money may be regarded as consisting of two main streams. 
One consists of payments by enterprises to individuals for their contribution 
to productive operations. The main components of this flow are remuneration 
to employees in the form of salaries and wages, to working proprietors for their 
labour, management and ownership, and to the owners of stocks, bonds and 
mortgage instruments for the provision of capital. At certain times, the pay- 
ments to individuals are considerably less than the net value of the products 
produced by enterprises. The undistributed portion of the net revenue is 
retained by the enterprise for the maintenance of payments in less propitious 
times and other purposes. Consequently, the savings of enterprises are normally 
positive in prosperous times and negative during depression. 

The other main flow of money is in the opposite direction. It consists of 
payments by consumers for the goods and services produced by productive 
enterprise. This stream may be considered as divided into two principal 
channels. Payments may be for goods and services for direct consumption and 
use, or they may consist of purchases of capital goods for the further extension 
of the productive process. As such purchasing is usually quite indirect, the 
money is regarded as the savings of the recipients. The money is largely 
invested through financial institutions, such as banking, insurance, trust, loan 
and mortgage companies. 

The national income may be computed from the viewpoint of production 
or of consumption. The first method deals with productive groups, the objective 
being to arrive at the net value of the goods and services produced. The result 
may be obtained in two alternate ways. The first is by deducting the cost of 
materials, miscellaneous expenses and depreciation from the gross operating 
revenue. The second method of more general feasibility is the summation of 
the positive or negative savings of enterprises and the payments to individuals 
consisting of salaries and wages, other labour income, pensions, superannuation 
and relief, withdrawals of working proprietors, net dividends, bond interest, 
mortgage interest and net rentals paid and imputed for owned homes. 

When the thirty industrial and service groups are regarded as a unit, it 
is observed that savings of enterprises were mainly positive during the first 
decade, the only exception having been in 1921. Payments to individuals were 
greater than income produced from 1930 to 1935 inclusive, when the position 
was again reversed. The cumulative gains in the first decade were nearly 
counterbalanced in the second. The general picture of national income 
payments and savings of enterprises from 1919-1940 is presented in Chap. I. 

Reviewing the twenty-year period, the compensation of employees, including 
pensions and relief, accounted for nearly 62 per cent of the total distribution, 
while less than 14 per cent was paid in the form of dividends, interest and rents. 
The share of the working proprietors averaged nearly 25 per cent. The decline 
in the share of the last category was the most striking feature. Labour's share, 
including other labour income, rose from about 60 per cent in the first decade 
to 63-3 per cent in the second, while the relative gain in income from dividends, 
interest and rent was from 12-8 per cent to 14-7 per cent. The share of the 
working proprietors dropped from 27-2 per cent to 22-0 per cent, the income 
of farmers and other primary producers showing a considerable setback from 
the favourable position of the first decade. 

An advancing inter- war trend was shown by other labour income including 
relief, as well as by bond interest and dividends. A declining trend was recorded 
in withdrawals and the sum of rentals and mortgage interest. Salaries and 
wages showed a slightly declining trend, while the proportion to income pay- 
ments as a whole showed an increase Li the second decade over the first.

REVUE MENSUELLE DE LA SITUATION ECONOMIQUE 

Vol. XVII OTTAWA, JANVIER 1942 N° 1 

Statisticien suppleant du Dominion: S. A. Cudmore, M.A. (Oxon.), F.S.S., F.R.S.C. 
Chef, Branche de la Statistiqce Generale: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 

SITUATION ECONOMIQUE EN DECEMBRE 

La moyenne des six facteurs majeurs tracant l'orientation de la situation economique est 
plus elevee en 1941 qu'en toute autre annee depuis 1929. L'indice du volume physique des 
affaires et la somme des depots a terme et a demande des banques a charte etablissent de nou- 
veaux records. Les obligations de tout repos demeurent stables toute l'annee, accusant une 
hausse moderee en novembre; leur niveau excede legerement l'orientation entre guerres. Les 
prix de gros accusent une hausse considerable pendant la majeure partie de 1941 et atteignent une 
moyenne plus elevee qu'en toute annee depuis 1929. La reaction des facteurs speculatifs, com- 
prenant le cours des actions ordinaires negociees aux bourses canadiennes et le volume des ope- 
rations speculatives, a une tendance a attenuer le niveau eleve dans les autres domaines de 
l'economie. 

Les fluctuations des six facteurs susmentionnes revetent des proportions moderees au cours 
du dernier mois de l'annee. La somme des depots a terme et a demande et le volume physique 
des affaires augmentent, tandis que les autres facteurs declinent un peu. L'indice preliminaire 
du volume physique des affaires avance en decembre, apres avoir recule les deux mois precedents. 
On peut citer quelques facteurs a ce sujet. L'indice de la production de charbon, apres ajuste- 
ment saisonnier, passe de 110 en novembre a 118 le dernier mois de l'annee. L'indice des dcdoua- 
nements de tabac, y compris les cigares et les cigarettes, avance de 147 a 160-5. L'indice de la 
production manufacturiere, base sur les produits animaux, approche 180 en decembre contre 162 
le mois precedent. La diminution de la production de fromage est beaucoup moiDs que normale 
pour la saison, et la production de beurre augmente un peu, apres l'ajustement habituel. L'indice 
des abatages inspectcs, indiquant la situation de la salaison, gagne deux points a 157. La con- 
sommation de coton par les textiles diminue un peu. L'indice de la production forestiere gagne 
plus de quatre points a 127 -5. 

Contrats de guerre et construction 

Les chiffres preliminaires publies par le Ministere des Munitions et Approvisionnements 
indiquent que la valeur totale des contrats adjuges et des engagements pris par le Ministere 
jusqu'a la fin de 1941 excede $3,200,000,000. Les depenses pour le compte du Canada se chiffrent 
a $1,754,000,000 et les engagements globaux pour le compte du Royaume-Uni s'elevent a 
$1,315,000,000. Les contrats adjuges "pour d'autres comptes" s'etablissent a $132,000,000. 

Des depenses de $344,000,000 pour les avions, soit pres de 20 p. c. de toutcs les depenses pour 
le compte du Canada, revelent le role important qu'a joue le plan d'entrainement aerien du 
Commonwealth dans l'industrie de guerre du Canada. Une partie de cette somme est au compte 
d'autres pays de l'Empire. Des depenses de $232,000,000 indiquent que le program me de 
construction navale du Canada va raaintenant de l'avant. Plus de $225,000,000 sont absorbes 
pour l'approvisionnement de magasins militaries, y compris les amies portatives et une grande 
variete d'outillage militaire. Les autres principaux item de depenses sont des projets de cons- 
truction et de defense, le vetement et le transport routier. 

En 1941 les contrats adjuges pour le compte du Canada sont raisonnablement bien repartis 
entre les douze mois, mais ils atteignent une cime en avril et en mai. Ce niveau general est bien 
au-dessus de la moyenne de 1940, mais il est encore bien au-dessus du record etabli au cours des 
trois derniers mois de cette annee-la. Les contrats adjuges en 1941 sont provisoirement etablis 
a $860,000,000 contre $797,000,000 en 1910. En 1941 les contrats adjuges sont plus nombreaux 
que ceux de l'annee precedente, mais leur valeur moyenne decline par suite du grand nombre de 
petits contrats places par les bureaux locaux d'achats. 

Les contrats de construction adjuges en decembre laissent voir une diminution saisonniere 
moderee, le total etant de $19,109,000. Toutefois, ce chiffre est pres de 13 p.c. plus considerable 
que celui de $10,918,300 en decembre 1940. Les contrats adjuges en Quebec et en Ontario 

28 



January, 1942 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 29 

absorbent plus de 60 p.c. du total; de meme, Factivite est intense en Nouvelle-Ecosse et en Co- 
lombie Britannique. La construction industrielle represente approximativement 45 p.c. du total. 
Les contrats en 1941 se chiffrent a $393,991,300 comparativement a $346,010,200 Fannee prece- 
dente. 

Transports 

Le transport ferroviaire demeure tres actif en decembre. Les chargements des quatre se- 
maines terminees le 27 decembre se chiffrent a 236,343 wagons contre 273,662 les quatre semaines 
terminees le 29 novembre. Toutefois, cette diminution est distinctement moins que norm ale 
pour la saison. La semaine correspondante de 1940 les chargements s'elevaient a 216,872 wagons, 
soit une augmentation de pres de 10 p.c. 

Les expeditions de grain se maintiennent a niveau eleve le mois sous revue, mais elles dimi- 
nuent considerablement en regard de celles de novembre. II y a peu de changement par rapport 
a la periode correspondante de 1940. Les chargements de charbon occupent le deuxieme rang 
en decembre; de meme, ils declinent un peu comparativement a ceux de novembre et different 
peu de ceux de decembre 1940. Les expeditions de minerai laissent voir une diminution sai- 
sonniere en regard de celles de novembre, mais elles sont un peu plus considerables que celles de 
la periode correspondante de Fan dernier. Les chargements de pulpe et de papier augmentent 
un peu en regard de ceux de novembre et sont beaucoup plus considerables que ceux de decembre 
1940. Les expeditions de bois d'oeuvre declinent un peu comparativement a celles du mois 
precedent, mais elles excedent de beaucoup celles de la meme periode de 1940. Les chargements 
d'autres produits forestiers, y compris le bois de pulpe, different peu de ceux de novembre, mais 
ils diminuent legerement en regard de ceux de 1940. Les marchandises par lots de moins d'un 
wagon sont un peu moins considerables qu'en novembre, mais elles excedent celles de la meme 
periode de Fannee precedente. 

Commerce exterieur 

Les exportations domestiques du Canada en decembre 1941 valent $150,472,000. Elles 
diminuent un peu comparativement a la cime atteinte en novembre, mais elles excedent de plus 
de 50 p.c. les exportations de $97,621,000 en decembre 1940. Les exportations domestiques au 
Royaume-Uni se chiffrent a $48,417,000, soit pres de 60 p.c. de plus qu'au cours du meme mois 
de 1940. 

Les expeditions aux Etats-Unis se chiffrent a $62,101,000, augmentation de plus de 40 p.c. 
sur celles de la meme periode de Fannee precedente. Les expeditions a FEgypte continuent d'etre 
considerables, ctant pres de trois fois plus fortes qu'en decembre 1940. 

Toutes les exportations principales augmentent comparativement a Fan dernier, mais les 
produits agricoles et animaux sont ceux qui augmentent le plus. Les exportations domestiques 
de ces produits augmentent de 89-8 p.c. et de 69-6 p.c. respectivement. Les produits du bois 
et du papier, le fer et Facier, et les metaux non ferreux laissent voir des gains substantiels en regard 
de decembre 1940; les produits chimiques accusent une augmentation marquee. Toutefois, le 
facteur le plus considerable de Faugmentation en regard de decembre 1940 semble indubitable- 
ment de plus fortes exportations de denrees alimentaires, principalement a la Grande-Bretagne. 

Financement d'obligations 

En decembre les seules emissions sont des obligations municipales et pour des montants 
relativement faibles. Ceci contraste avec decembre 1940, alors que le Gouvernement federal a 
em is des obligations pour une valeur de $250,000,000. Les emissions de bons du Tresor se chiffrent 
a $90,000,000 contre $75,000,000 le meme mois de Fan dernier. Les remboursements s'elevent 
a $75,000,000; les bons fournissent done $15,000,000 de nouveaux fonds. 

Les emissions d'obligations du gouvernement en 1941 augmentent legerement en regard de 
celles de 1940, passant de $1,366,516,631 a $1,375,419,372. Les emissions du Gouvernement 
federal sont plus considerables, mais cette augmentation est presque neutralised par une diminution 
des obligations provinciales. Les remboursements pendant Fannee se chiffrent a $619,782,300, le 
nouveau pouvoir d'achat etant de $755,637,172. Les emissions de bons du Tresor valent 
$960,000,000 contre $900,000,000 en 1940. Les remboursements de bons du Tresor s'elevent a 
$920,000,000; le nouveau pouvoir d'achat cree est done de $40,000,000. 

Les emissions d'obligations des corporations valent $17,739,000 en 1941 comparativement a 
$27,083,800 en 1940. II y a un declin des emissions d'utilites publiques. Les remboursements 
pendant Fannee ne s'etablissent qu'a $3,954,800; les nouveaux fonds mis en circulation se chiffrent 
done a $13,284,200. 



30 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS January, 1942 

Revenu national 

Deux sources principales alimentent le cours de l'argent. La premiere comprend les paie- 
ments des entreprises aux individus pour leur contribution aux operations productives. Ses prin- 
cipaux elements sont la remuneration aux employes sous forme de salaires et gages, aux pro- 
prietaries qui travaillent pour leur labeur, leur administration et leur propriete, et aux detenteurs 
d'actions, d'obligations et d'hypotheques pour leur souscription de capitaux. A certains temps 
les paiements aux individus sont beaucoup plus faibles que la valeur nette des produits manu- 
factures par les entreprises. La partie non distribute du revenu net est retenue par l'entreprise 
pour le maintien des paiements en des temps moins propices et pour d'autres fins. En consequen- 
ce, les epargnes des entreprises sont normalement positives en temps de prosperite et negatives 
en temps de crise. 

L'autre cours principal de l'argent va dans une direction opposee. II comprend les paiements 
par les consommateurs pour les marchandises et les services fournis par l'entreprise productive. 
On peut considerer que ce courant se divise en deux chenaux principaux. Les paiements peuvent 
etre pour des marchandises et des services pour la consommation et l'utilisation directes, ou ils 
peuvent consister en achats de materiel fixe pour une nouvelle expansion du processus productif. 
Comme un tel achat est ordinairement tout a fait indirect, l'argent est regarde comme les epargnes 
des recipiendaires. L'argent est surtout place par Pintermediaire des institutions fmancieres, 
comme les banques, les compagnies d'assurance, de fiducie, de pret et d'hypotheque. 

Le revenu national peut se calculer au point de vue de la production ou de la consommation. 
La premiere methode porte sur les groupes de la production, l'objectif etant d'en arriver a la 
valeur nette des marchandises et des services produits. Le resultat peut s'obtenir de deux f aeons. 
La premiere consiste a soustraire du revenu brut d'exploitation le cout des matieres premieres, 
des depenses diverses et la depreciation. La seconde methode, en general plus praticable, con- 
siste a additionner les epargnes positives ou negatives des entreprises et les paiements aux indi- 
vidus en salaires et gages, les autres revenus provenant du travail, les pensions, les rentes et les 
secours, les retraits des proprietaires qui travaillent, les dividendes nets, l'interet sur obligations, 
l'interet sur hypotheques et les loj^ers nets payes et imputes pour les maisons habitues par leurs 
proprietaires. 

Quand on considere les trente groupes d'industries et de services comme une unite, on observe 
que les epargnes des entreprises sont principalement positives durant la premiere decennie, la 
seule exception etant 1921. Les paiements aux individus sont plus grands que le revenu produit 
de 1930 a 1935 inclusivement, alors que la position est de nouveau renversee. Les gains cumula- 
tifs de la premiere decennie sont presque contre-balances dans la seconde. L'aspect general des 
paiements de revenu national et des epargnes des entreprises de 1919 a 1940 est presents dans 
le graphique 1. 

Passant en revue la pe>io le de vingt ans, la compensation aux employes, comprenant les pensions 
et les secours, absorbe pres de 62 p.c. de la distribution globale, tandis que moins de 14 p.c. sont 
payes sous forme de dividendes, d'interets et de lovers. La part des proprietaires qui travaillent 
atteint une moyenne de pres de 25 p.c. La diminution de cette part est la caractcristique la plus 
frappante. La part du travail, y compris le revenu provenant du travail, passe d'environ 60 p.c. 
la premiere decennie a 63-3 p.c. la seconde, tandis que le revenu provenant des dividendes, des 
interets et des loyers fait un gain relatif de 12-8 p.c. a 14-7 p.c. La part des proprietaires qui 
travaillent decline de 27-2 p.c. a 22 p.c, le revenu des fermiers et des autres producteurs 
primaires laissant voir un recul considerable en regard de la position favorable au cours de la 
premiere decennie. 

Les autres revenus provenant du travail, y compris les secours, de meme que les interets et 
les dividendes sur obligations s'orientent vers une augmentation la periode entre guerres. Les 
retraits, la somme des loyers et les interets sur hypotheques diminuent. Les salaires et gages 
declinent legerement, tandis que la proportion par rapport a l'ensemble des paiements de revenus 
augmente la seconde decennie comparativement a la premiere.

The Annual Report of "Bank Debits to Individual Accounts 
and Equation of Exchange, 1941" is available for distribution. 
A table showing debits by each of the clearing centres from 1924 
to the present is included. The relative position, the trend and 
fluctuation of the debits in the principal centres are portrayed in 
the charts. The relation of the country-wide total of the national 
income to the terms of the equation of exchange is an interesting 
topic of the Bulletin. 

Canada 194®, an Official Handbook, covers the present situation 
in the Dominion from Atlantic to Pacific, the weight of emphasis 
being placed on those aspects which are currently of most importance. 
So far as space permits, all phases of the country's economic 
organization are dealt with and statistics are brought up to the 
latest possible moment. The text is accompanied by a wealth of 
illustrative matter which adds to the interest of the subjects treated. 

The Introduction reviews Canada's war effort, covering the 
development of her armed forces, the financial steps that have been 
taken and the governmental organizations that have been created 
and their principal activities. It also reviews Canada's economic 
condition at the close of 1941. This Introduction is followed by a 
special article dealing with Canada's Attractions for the Vacationist, 
which is accompanied by a four-page scenic insert in colour. 

The economic survey is covered in seventeen chapters dealing 
with population, production, trade, manufactures, transportation, 
labour, finance, education, etc. 

The price of the publication is 25 cents per copy; application 
for regular priced copies should be made to the KING'S PRINTER, 
OTTAWA. 

A special price concession has been authorized in the case of 
teachers, bona fide students, and ministers of religion. To such 
individuals, the price is set at 10 cents for one copy. 

Application for copies under this Special Distribution should be 
addressed to the DOMINION STATISTICIAN, OTTAWA.

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN JANUARY 

The average of six factors indicating the trend of economic conditions was 
higher in January than in the preceding month, reaching a new high point for 
recent years. A moderate gain was shown in wholesale prices, while the sum of 
the notice and demand deposits rose to a new high point in history. Minor 
recessions were shown in the prices of common stocks and high-grade bonds. 
Speculative trading was also at a lower level than in the last month of 1940. 

The price index of industrial materials, which had been 91-7 in December, 
rose to 92-6 in the last week of January. The standing in January, 1941, was 
80-1. The advance in the weekly index number was mainly due to strength in 
food commodities. The index of the cost of living at the beginning of January 
was 115-4 against 115-8 in December and 108-3 in January, 1941. 

High-grade bond prices were practically maintained in January at the 
relatively high level of the last month of the year. Dominion bonds were 
remarkably steady during 1941, a slight advance having been shown over the 
twelve months. An announcement of the terms of the Second Victory Loan 
made in January was without appreciable effect on the high-grade market, the 
terms being completely in line with existing prices. Trading was light as with the 
approach of the new loan, potential buyers were keeping their resources available 
for subscription. 

The sum of the notice and demand deposits rose to a new high level at the 
beginning of January. Deposit liabilities of this description record an erratic 
movement in war time due to heavy payments on government loans. Deposits 
have been accumulated since July, more than offsetting the decline during June 
when the first Victory Loan had led to a marked reduction. An index of demand 
and notice deposits was 152 at the beginning of January, compared with 138-5 on 
the same date one year ago. 

Interest in stock markets continued at a low level during the first month of 
the year. The decline in prices was of a minor character. An average of thirty 
industrials and utilities traded on the Montreal Stock Exchange was 53-8 on 
February 5th compared with 54 • 5 on the corresponding date of January. Twenty 
industrials traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange averaged 89 • 42 compared 
with 92-62 in the same comparison. An unofficial index of dividend payments 
gained a full point in January rising to 121-3 from the standing of 120-3 in 
December. The rise constituted the third consecutive monthly increase bringing 
the index to the highest point in over a year. 

The volume of production recorded a gain in January according to the 
preliminary calculation of the index of the physical volume of business. The 
index had risen in December over the preceding month and the standing of the 
first month of the year was not greatly changed from December. 

The gross value of agricultural production in Canada was placed at $1,375 
million during 1941 as compared with $1,259 million in the preceding year. The 
standing for 1941 was greater than in any other year since 1929, when farm prices 
were at a much higher level. Increases over the preceding year occurred in all 
the individual items making up the total, with the exception of field crops and 
maple products. The decline of $28-8 million in the gross value of field crops 
resulted from a sharp reduction in the output of wheat. The gross value of live 
stock, dairy and poultry production showed an increase of $120-5 million over 
the preceding year. Increased output coupled with higher farm prices were 
responsible for the added values.

February, 1942 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 5 

Cash income from the sale of farm products was estimated at $876 • 5 million 
during the year recently ended. The standing was higher than in any other year 
since 1929 when the value was $922-3 million. Comparable amounts for 1940 
and 1939 were $739-4 million and $710-2 million, respectively. The increase in 
the year under review occurred mostly in the live stock and animal products 
group with greater output and higher prices mainly responsible. Income from 
live stock sales was $67-2 million higher than in 1940, and dairy products in- 
creased by $38-3 million. Cash from wheat sales recorded a decline of $13-9 
million. The estimates of income are based on reports of marketings and prices 
received by farmers for the principal farm products. 

The cattle market recorded a strong trend in early January despite the fact 
that marketings were exceptionally heavy. Despite the generous receipts, 
however, the trade was buoyant due in large measure to the demand for shipment 
to the United States. The hog market was generally firm throughout although 
there was some tendency toward easiness in the latter part of the month. Market- 
ings of nearly all classes of live stock were sharply higher than in January last 
year. Cattle sales at stock yards and packing plants were 110,000 compared with 
84,000 head in the same month of 1941. Hog grading showed an increase of over 
88,000 head amounting to 590,813. The sheep and lamb marketings were at a 
somewhat lower level amounting to 35,000 head. 

Newsprint production was 311,904 tons against 300,823 in December. 
After seasonal adjustment the index moved up from 124 to 130. Woodpulp 
exports were at a somewhat lower level. Exports of planks and boards were 
103 million feet against 139-5 million in December, the index showing a marked 
decline from 113-8 to 90-8. The volume of shingle exports, however, was at a 
higher level, the total having been 199,000 squares against 106,000 in December. 
The net result was that the forestry index declined more than 1 point to 126-9. 

Timber scaled in British Columbia during 1941 was 3,523 million feet against 
3,524 • 7 million feet in the preceding year, the activity of the industry having been 
practically maintained. The total for December, however, declined from 279 
million feet to 226 million. 

The value of fish landed by the Canadian sea fisheries during 1941 was 
$25,550,500 against $18,734,740 in the preceding year. 

Several of the indexes recording the trend of mineral production showed 
increase in January over the preceding month. Gold receipts at the Mint were 
442,028 ounces against 401,716 in December. After seasonal adjustment a slight 
increase was shown in the index from 114-7 to 115-7. A gain was shown in 
silver shipments, the total in January having been 1,494,000 fine ounces. The 
index of mineral production for 1941 showed a further increase over the very high 
level of the preceding year, rising 2-7 p.c. to 128-8. The production of base 
metals, for which detailed figures are not available, recorded an increase of 6-5 
p.c. over 1940. 

Electric power production was 33,445 million k.w.h. in 1941 compared with 
30,080 million in the preceding year, a gain of 11 -2 p.c. 

The index of manufacturing production was 150-8 last year against 134-5, a 
gain of 12-1 p.c. The output of the component industries recorded almost 
unanimous gains. Inspected slaughterings in January were at a somewhat 
lower level than in the preceding month, the index dropping from 157 to 143. 
Declines were shown in each of the three divisions, slaughterings of hogs having 
been 587,509 head against 687,299 in December. The index of butter production 
showed a minor gain in January over the preceding month, while the output of 
factory cheese was at a lower position. The export of canned salmon showed a 
considerable drop in the month under review. The consumption of raw cotton 
recorded a slight gain in January, the total having been 16-8 million pounds 
against 16-2 million in the preceding month. 

Contracts awarded to the construction industry were at a lower position in 
January than in either the preceding months, or in the same month one year ago. 
The total was $12 • 9 million against $19 • 1 million in December and $26 • 6 million 
one year ago. The index consequently receded to 119 against 203 in December.

_ During the first six weeks of the present year carloadings amounted to 
358~801 cars against 304,435 in the same period of 1941. The index of cars 
loaded in January was 149-6 against 138-8 in December, the standing in the 
same month one year ago having been 125-7. The index of tonnage carried in 
January was 193-4 against 167-7 in December and 146-8 one year ago. During 
the elapsed portion of 1942 nine out of eleven commodity groups were carried in 
larger volume. Coke and "other forest products" recorded decline, while marked 
increases were shown in miscellaneous commodities and grain. The movement 
of coal rose from 36,139 cars to 40,696, a gain of 4,557 cars. 

The index of retail sales averaged 135-9 in 1941 against 117-5 in the preced- 
ing year, a gain of 15-7 p.c. The percentage increase of wholesale sales was of 
even greater proportions, the index moving up 17-6 p.c. to 141-9. Exports in 
January recorded a marked expansion, the total being $152,308,000 against 
$88,953,000 in the same month last year. After seasonal adjustment, the index 
of exports was 199 • 7 in the month under review against 163 • 9 in December, the 
increase being mainly due to adjustment for seasonal variation. 

Industrial employment in the first twenty-seven months of the war has shown 
almost continuous expansion on a scale unparalleled in any earlier period. 
From" the outbreak of hostilities to December last, the index rose by 41 p.c, a 
gain of this magnitude is emphasized by comparison with that of 14-5 p.c. in the 
five years ended in 1939, while in the period of 1921-1939 the general index rose 
by about 28 p.c. Expansion in the durable goods industries has been of particular 
significance, from 100-4 at the beginning of the conflict, the index number in this 
class has risen to 212-1 at the latest date, a gain of 111 p.c. The number of 
persons employed in this category constituted 51 p.c. of those reporting for manu- 
facturing on December 1, 1941, a proportion substantially in excess of that of 
40 p.c. engaged in the durable goods industries on September 1, 1939. 

The firms furnishing information regarding earnings reported the disburse- 
ment of $46 • 1 million in salaries and wages for the final week of November as 
compared with $45-3 million in the last week of October, while the payrolls of 
the same employers distributed to those on their staffs on June 1 for services 
rendered in the last week in May amounted to $38-6 million. An index number 
based upon these statistics had, therefore, risen to 117 • 3 in the last week of October 
and to 119-6 in the last week of November. In manufacturing, preliminary 
index numbers of payrolls show even more pronounced gains than those in all 
industries although large numbers of inexperienced workers are still being added 
to the personnel. 

The amount of cheques cashed in clearing centres was $3,231 million in 
January, against $3,687 million in the preceding month. The standing in 
January, 1941, was $2,941 million. Of the $3,231 million cashed in January, 
the amount of $3,105 million was debited to current accounts while $125-4 
million was charged against savings accounts. 

Expenditure of the Dominion Government for war purposes was reported 
at $145,247,950 in January against $87,660,803 in the same month of 1941. 
The total amount during the first ten months of the fiscal year was $997,920,034. 
This amount compares with $565,034,571 in the same period of the preceding 
fiscal year. The total expenditure during the fiscal year to date was $1,364-5 
million against $920-6 million in the comparable period of the fiscal year from 
April 1, 1940 to March 31, 1941. The total revenue rose from $653 million to 
$1,143 million in the same comparison. Marked gains were shown in the receipts 
from income and excise taxes. 

The tentative monthly computation of national income is discontinued in 
the present number pending the completion of a revision now in process.

REVUE MENSUELLE DE LA SITUATION ECONOMIQUE 

Vol. XVIII OTTAWA, FEVRIER 1942 N° 2 

Statisticien suppleant du Dominion: S. A. Cudmore, M.A. (Oxon.), F.S.S., F.R.S.C. 
Chef, Branche de la Statistique Generale: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 

SITUATION ECONOMIQUE EN JANVIER 

La moyenne des six facteurs tracant l'orientation de la situation economique est plus 61ev£e 
en Janvier qu'au cours du mois precedent et atteint une nouvelle cime en ces dernieres ann6es. 
Les prix de gros montent moderement, tandis que la somme des depots a terme et a demande passe 
a un niveau sans precedent. Les actions ordinaires et les obligations de tout repos baissent un 
peu. Les operations sp6culatives sont egalement moins considerables que celles du dernier mois 
de 1940. 

L'indice des prix des matieres premieres industrielles, qui se placait a 91-7 en decembre, 
avance a 92-6 la derniere semaine de Janvier; en Janvier 1941 il s'etablissait a 80-1. Cette 
avance de l'indice hebdomadaire est surtout attribuable a la force des denrees alimentaires. 
L'indice du cout de la vie au debut de Janvier se place a 115 • 4 contre 115 • 8 en decembre et 108 • 3 
en Janvier 1941. 

En Janvier les obligations de tout repos se maintiennent a peu pres au niveau relativement 
eleve du dernier mois de l'annee. Les obligations du Dominion sont remarquablement stables 
en 1941 et laissent voir une legere hausse pendant les douze mois. L'annonce des conditions du 
deuxieme emprunt de la victoire en Janvier n'a pas eu d'effet appreciable sur le marche des obliga- 
tions de tout repos, les termes etant parfaitement conformes aux cours existants. Les operations 
ont ete faibles a l'approche du nouvel emprunt, les acheteurs potentiels gardant leurs disponibilites 
pour y souscrire. 

La somme des depots a terme et a demande atteint une nouvelle cime au commencement de 
Janvier. Ces depots sont erratiques en temps de guerre par suite des souscriptions considerables 
aux emprunts du governement. Les depots se sont accumules depuis juillet et ont plus que 
neutralise le declin en juin, alors que le premier emprunt de la victoire avait occasionne une 
diminution marquee. L'indice des depdts a terme et a demande s'6tablit a 152 au debut de Jan- 
vier, a rapprocher de 138-5 la m6me date de Tan dernier. 

L'interdt pour les marches de valeurs immobilieres continue d'etre a un niveau moins eleve 
le premier mois de l'annee. Le declin des cours est d'importance mineure. La moyenne de 
trente titres industriels et d'utilites actifs a la Bourse de Montreal est de 53-8 le 5 fevrier, com- 
parativement a 54 • 5 la date correspondante de Janvier. Vingt titres industriels actifs a la Bourse 
de Toronto atteignent une moyenne de 89-42 contre 92-62 dans la merae comparaison. L'indice 
officieux des paiements de dividendes avance d'un point a 121-3, en regard de 120-3 en decembre. 
Ce gain est la troisieme avance mensuelle consecutive et porte l'indice a son plus haut point 
pendant l'annee. 

Le volume de la production augmente en Janvier, d'apres les calculs preliminaries de l'indice 
jdu volume physique des affaires. En decembre l'indice a avance* en regard du mois precedent et 
e niveau du premier mois de l'annee ne change pas beaucoup par rapport a celui de decembre. 

La valeur brute de la production agricole au Canada est placee a $1,375,000,000 en 1941, a 
rapprocher de $1,259,000,000 l'annee prec6dente. La valeur en 1941 est plus forte qu'en toute 
autre annee depuis 1929, alors que les prix des produits de la ferme 6taient beaucoup plus elev6s. 
En regard de l'annee precedente tous les produits accusent des augmentations, a l'exception des 
c6reales et des produits de l'erable. Le declin de $28,800,000 dans la valeur brute des cereales 
resulte d'une brusque diminution de la production de ble. La valeur brute du betail, des produits 
laitiers et de basse-cour augmente de $120,500,000 comparativement a celle de l'annee precedente. 
L'augmentation de la production et la hausse des prix a la ferme expliquent cette augmentation 
de valeur. ^-~_-___— ^_ 

Le revenu en especes provenant de la vente des produits de la ferme est estime a $876,500,000 
pendant l'annee qui vient de finir. Ce revenu est plus considerable qu'en toute ann6e depuis 
1929, alors qu'il se chiffrait a $922,300,000. Les montants comparables pour 1940 et 1939 sont 



February, 1942 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 29 

de $739,400,000 et $710,200,000 respectivement. L'augmentation durant l'annee sous revue se 
fait surtout sentir dans le groupe du bewail et des produits animaux; elle a pour causes principales 
'augmentation de la production et la hausse des prix. Le revenu provenant des ventes de besti- 
aux s'eleve a $67,200,000 de plus qu'en 1940 et celui attribuable aux produits laitiers augmente de 
$38,300,000. Les ventes de ble rapportent $13,900,000 de moins. Les estimations du revenu sont 
basees sur les rapports des livraisons et des prix recus par les f ermiers pour les principaux produits 
de la ferme. 

Le marche des b6tes a comes se raffermit au debut de Janvier, bien que les arrivages soient 
exceptionnellement considerables. Malgre les arrivages abondants, toutefois, le commerce reste 
ferme, surtout par suite de la demande pour expedition aux Etats-Unis. Le marche" du pore est 
generalement ferme durant le mois, mais il a une tendance a flechir la derniere partie du mois. 
Les livraisons de bestiaux de toutes categories sont beaucoup plus considerables que celles de 
Janvier Tan dernier. Les ventes de betes a cornes aux enclos et aux salaisons se chiffrent a 110,000 
tetes contre 84,000 le meme mois de 1941. Les ventes de pores augmentent de plus de 88,000 
tdtes et s'elevent a 590,813. Les livraisons de moutons et d'agneaux s'etablissent a 35,000 tdtes, 
soit une legere diminution. 

La production de papier a journal est de 311,904 tonnes contre 300,823 en decembre. Apres 
ajustement saisonnier l'indice passe de 124 a 130. Les exportations de pulpe de bois diminuent 
un peu. Les exportations de madriers et planches s'elevent a 103,000,000 de pieds comparative- 
ment a 139,500,000 en decembre et l'indice fait un declin marque de 113-8 a 90-8. Cependant, 
les exportations de bardeaux augmentent a 199,000 carres contre 106,000 en decembre. Le 
r6sultat net est que l'indice de l'industrie forestiere perd plus d'un point a 126-9. 

Le bois mesure en Colombie Britannique en 1941 se place a 3,523,000,000 de pieds contre 
3,524,700,000 pieds l'annee precedente, l'activite de l'industrie se maintenant a peu pres au 
m&ne niveau. Le total de decembre, toutefois, decline de 279,000,000 a 226,000*000 de pieds. 

Les pScheries maritimes du Canada rapportent $25,550,500 en 1941 contre $18,734,740 en 
1940. 

Plusieurs des indices de la production minerale laissent voir en Janvier une avance en regard 
du mois precedent. Les arrivages d'or a la Monnaie s'etablissent a 442,028 onces contre 401,716 
le mois precedent. Apres ajustement saisonnier l'indice recule de 1 14 • 7 a 1 15 • 7. Les expeditions 
d'argent augmentent a 1,494,000 onces fines en Janvier. L'indice de la production minerale en 
1941 accuse un autre gain par rapport au niveau tres elev6 de l'annee precedente; il avance de 
2-7 p.c. pour se placer a 128-8. La production de m6taux communs, pour lesquels il n'existe pas 
de chiffres detailles, augmente de 6-5 p.c. comparativement a celle de 1940. 

La production d'energie electrique s'eleve a 33,445,000,000 de kilowatt-heures en 1941, a 
rapprocher de 30,080,000,000 l'annee precedente, augmentation de 11 -2 p.c. 

L'indice de la production manuf acturiere se place a 150 • 8 Fan dernier contre 134 • 5, gain de 
12-1 p.c. Presque toutes les industries laissent voir des augmentations. Les abatages inspectes 
en Janvier sont un peu moins considerables qu'au cours du mois precedent, l'indice reculant de 
157 a 143. II y a des declins en chacune des trois categories; les abatages de pores diminuent a 
587,509 tetes contre 687,299 en decembre. L'indice de la production de beurre decline un peu 
en Janvier en regard du mois precedent, tandis que la production de fromage de fabrique est plus 
faible. Les exportations de saumon en boite diminuent considerablement le mois sous revue. 
La consommation de coton brut augmente legerement en Janvier, le total etant de 16,800,000 
livres contre 16,200,000 le mois precedent. 

Les contrats de construction adjuges en Janvier sont moins volumineux qu'au cours du mois 
precedent et du meme mois de l'an dernier. Le total est de $12,900,000, comparativement a 
$19,100,000 en decembre et $26,600,000 Fan dernier. L'indice passe done a 119 contre 203 en 
decembre. 

Au cours des six premieres semaines de l'annee courante les chargements s'elevent a 358,801 
wagons contre 304,435 la meme periode de 1941. L'indice des chargements de wagons se place a 
149-6 en Janvier, a rapprocher de 138-8 en decembre et 125-7 le meme mois de l'an dernier- 
L'indice du tonnage transports s'etablit a 193 • 4 en Janvier, comparativement a 167 • 7 en decembre 
et 146 • 8 l'an dernier. A date cette annee il y a une augmentation du transport de neuf des onze 
groupes de denrees. Le coke et les "autres produits forestiers" declinent, tandis que les denrees 
di verses et le grain font un gain marque. Le transport du charbon augmente de 36,139 wagons 
a 40,696, soit de 4,557 wagons. 



30 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS February, 1942 

L'indice des ventes de detail atteint une moyenne de 135-9 en 1941 contre 117-5 l'ann6e 
pr6cedente, gain de 15-7 p.c. L'augmentation proportionnelle des ventes de gros est encore plus 
forte, l'indice avancant de 17-6 p.c. a 141-9. Les exportations prennent une expansion marquee 
en Janvier; elles valent $152,308,000 comparativement a $88,953,000 le mke mois de Tan dernier. 
Apres ajustement saisonnier, l'indice des exportations se place a 199-7 le mois sous revue contre 
163-9 en decembre; cette avance est surtout attribuable a l'ajustement pour variation saisonniere. 
L'emploiement industriel au cours des vingt-sept premiers mois de guerre prend une expansion 
presque continue et jamais observee en toute autre penode anterieure. Depuis le declenchement 
des hostilites jusqu'en decembre dernier l'indice avance de 41 p.c. Ce gain important prend un 
vif relief quand on le compare a celui de 14-5 p.c. au cours des cinq ans termines en 1939 et a 
celui de 28 p.c. durant la periode de 1921-1939. L'expansion des industries de marchandises 
durables a une signification particuliere; de 100-4 au commencement du conflit, le nombre-indice 
passe a 212-1 a la derniere date, gain de 111 p.c. Le nombre d'employes dans cette cat6gorie 
constitue 51 p.c. de tous les employes des manufactures le ler decembre 1941, proportion qui 
excede de beaucoup celle de 40 p.c. dans les industries de marchandises durables le ler septembre 
1939. 

Les firmes fournissant des donnees relativement aux gains de leurs employes pour le ler 
decembre declarent avoir debourse $46,100,000 en salaires et gages pour la derniere semaine de 
novembre comparativement a $45,300,000 la derniere semaine d'octobre, tandis que les memes 
patrons ont distribue $38,600,000 a leurs employes le ler juin pour leurs services rendus la derniere 
semaine de mai. Un indice base sur ces statistiques est done passe a 117-3 la derniere semaine 
d'octobre et a 119-6 la derniere semaine de novembre. Dans les manufactures, les nombres- 
indices preliminaires des bordereaux de paye laissent voir des gains encore plus prononc6s que ceux 
de toutes les industries, bien qu'un grand nombre d'ouvriers inexp^rimentes soient encore ajout6s 
aux effectifs. 
Revenu national 

En retour pour leur participation a la production de marchandises et de services, les individus 
recoivent une compensation, soit en especes, soit en nature. Si Ton additionne ces revenus en 
argent et la valeur des benefices eventuels, le resultat constitue les paiements globaux de revenus 
aux individus. Durant toute periode il est rare que la valeur du produit fini equivaille exactement 
a la compensation payee aux divers organismes engages en un processus productif quelconque. 
En consequence, le revenu national et les paiements globaux aux individus sont normalement 
inegaux. 

Comme ces sortes de revenus representent principalement la compensation des divers groupes 
du systeme economique, on reconnait l'importance des changements dans la distribution. Des 
donnees sur la proportion du revenu total pay6e a chacun des divers facteurs de la production a 
differentes periodes sont d'une valeur considerable dans Interpretation de la structure de l'6co- 
nomie canadienne. 

La somme globale des paiements de revenus aux consommateurs s'eleve a une moyenne de 
$4,002,000,000 par annee au cours de la penode entre guerres. La moyenne durant la seconde 
decennie est de $3,939,000,000 contre $4,065,000,000 au cours de la premiere, soit un declin de 
$126,000,000 seulement ou d'environ 3 p.c. Ce leger declin des paiements de revenus, en contraste 
avec la diminution de plus de 11 p.c. du revenu national, est attribuable a une variation marquee 
des 6pargnes des entreprises. Les paiements de revenus, par suite des grandes 6pargnes negatives 
atteignent une moyenne de $176,000,000 par annee de plus que le revenu produit durant la seconde 
decennie, tandis que les paiements aux individus sont de $183,000,000 par annee de moins que le 
revenu produit au cours de la premiere decennie. L'indice des paiements de revenus au cours des 
dix-neuf ans, sur la base de 1926, diminue de • 39 par annee comparativement a une diminution 
de • 84 pour l'indice du revenu national. 

Le graphique 1 indique que les principaux groupes, comme sources de paiements de revenus, 
sont l'agriculture et les manufactutures, n.a.s. Apres elimination des doubles emplois dans les 
industries primaires, les manufactures occupent la deuxieme place au cours de la p6riode entre 
guerres. L'agriculture est prospere pendant la premiere decennie et garde la premiere place pour 
toute la penode, en depit des revers des dernieres annees. L'agriculture contribue 16-1 p.c. des 
paiements globaux de revenu national et les manufactures, n.a.s., 14-9 p.c.

The Annual Report of "-Bank Debits to Individual Accounts 
and Equation of Exchange, 1941" is available for distribution. 
A table showing debits by each of the clearing centres from 1924 
to the present is included. The relative position, the trend and 
fluctuation of the debits in the principal centres are portrayed in 
the charts. The relation of the country-wide total of the national 
income to the terms of the equation of exchange is an interesting 
topic of the Bulletin. 

Canada 194®, an Official Handbook, covers the present situation 
in the Dominion from Atlantic to Pacific, the weight of emphasis 
being placed on those aspects which are currently of most importance. 
So far as space permits, all phases of the country's economic 
organization are dealt with and statistics are brought up to the 
latest possible moment. The text is accompanied by a wealth of 
illustrative matter which adds to the interest of the subjects treated. 

The Introduction reviews Canada's war effort, covering the 
development of her armed forces, the financial steps that have been 
taken and the governmental organizations that have been created 
and their principal activities. It also reviews Canada's economic 
condition at the close of 1941. This Introduction is followed by a 
special article dealing with Canada's Attractions for the Vacationist, 
which is accompanied by a four-page scenic insert in colour. 

The economic survey is covered in seventeen chapters dealing 
with population, production, trade, manufactures, transportation, 
labour, finance, education, etc. 

The price of the publication is 25 cents per copy; application 
for regular priced copies should be made to the KING'S PRINTER, 
OTTAWA. 

A special price concession has been authorized in the case of 
teachers, bona fide students, and ministers of religion. To such 
individuals, the price is set at 10 cents for one copy. 

Application for copies under this Special Distribution should be 
addressed to the DOMINION STATISTICIAN, OTTAWA.

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN FEBRUARY 

Four of the major economic factors indicating general conditions in Canada 
recorded increases in February over the preceding month. Common stock 
prices showed further recession, the fluctuation since May, 1940, having been 
of a relatively minor character. Speculative trading also has remained at a 
low level. 

Bank deposits showed considerable increase at the beginning of February. 
A new high point in history was reached for the sum of Government and private 
deposits. An advance has been in progress since the early months of 1934 and 
marked increase has been shown since the outbreak of hostilities. The bond 
market was quiet in the early weeks of February and the price remained steady, 
reflecting the influence of the second Victory Loan. The response to the 
offering exceeded all expectations, subscriptions amounting to more than 
$979 million. There was 1 -5 million subscribers, a new record. Of the record 
total subscribed $827 millions was for cash, and $152 millions was for conversion 
of maturing Dominion issues into Victory Bonds. 
Prices 

The index of industrial material prices averaged slightly higher in February 
than in the preceding month. The index averaged 92-8 during the four weeks 
of the month under review, against 92-4 in the first month of the year. The 
standing in February, 1941, was 81-2. An authorized increase in prices of 
certain steel products was mainly responsible for this advance. 

Canadian farm products continued to gain gradually, rising from 78-0 on 
January 30th, to 78-6 on February 27th. Animal products at 102-6 on Feb- 
ruary 27th, was 1-3 points above the closing January level, due mainly to 
gains for cattle, hides and skins. The cost of living index was 115-7 at the 
beginning of February against 115-4 at the turn of the year. It is of special 
interest that the cost of living index declined in the first month of the control's 
operation to 115-4 on January 2, from 115-8 on December 1st, the date the 
control became effective, and from 116-3 on November 1st. Upon that decline 
of the index, the National Labour Board announced that there would be no 
change in the cost of living bonus under the terms of the wage control. 
Production 

Business operations which had reached a high point in the first month of 
the year showed a recession in February. The index has shown an advance 
since the early part of 1938, recording a marked acceleration after the outbreak 
of hostilities. During the early months of 1940, the high level of 1929 was 
exceeded and an important gain has been recorded since that time. 
Agriculture 

Wheat stocks in elevators in Canada for the week ended March 6th were 
455 million bushels against 439-3 million in the same week of last year. The 
export clearances for the period from August 1 to March 7 were 87 million 
bushels compared with 69-4 million in the same period of the preceding year. 
Wheat receipts in the Prairie Provinces amounted to 167-8 million bushels 
compared with 325-4 million in the same period of the preceding crop year. 

Despite the fact that the full rate of duty was applied to Canadian cattle 
entering the United States in February, the price structure recorded an upward 
trend. Offerings of cattle were light as a rule and at times there was a scramble

to obtain necessary supplies. Some of the earlier gains were erased at the end 
of the month but there were no sharp breaks and prices finished definitely 
higher than at the opening of the month. The hog market was strong at all 
market centres and prices were raised appreciably. Cattle deliveries to stock- 
yards and direct to packing plants for the first two months of the year were 
187,000 head compared with 152,000 last year. Hog gradings, under the 
stimulus provided by the contract of the British Ministry of Food for 600 million 
pounds of bacon before October next, continued to increase, and marketings in 
January and February amounted to 1,087,938 head compared with 998,648 in 
the same period last year. 
Manufacturing 

Manufacturing production recorded an increase in February, due allowance 
being made for seasonal tendencies. Some recession was shown in the operations 
of the meat-packing industry, the index receding from 143 to 131. The hog 
slaughterings were 494,000 head against 588,000, a considerable proportion of 
the drop having been due to seasonal tendencies. Exports of canned salmon 
were 13-8 million pounds against 5-1 million in January. 

The raw cotton used by the textile industry was nearly maintained in 
February at the high level of January. The total was 16-7 million pounds 
against 16-8 million. 

The forestry industry was more active, the index advancing from 127-0 to 
134. Gains were reported in the exports of woodpulp, planks and boards and 
shingles, while newsprint production was at a slightly lower level. The exports 
of planks and boards were nearly 129 million feet against 103 million. Con- 
struction contracts awarded were $11-1 million against $12-9 million, the new 
business obtained being at a considerably lower level than in the same period 
of 1941. Automobile production, including military vehicles, was 20,181 units 
against 21,751. 
Internal Trade 

Retail sales in January recorded a gain of 26 p.c. over the same month of 
the preceding year. The index was 128-5 against 102-3 in the twelve-month 
comparison. On making adjustment for differences in the number of business 
days and for seasonal variation, the adjusted index stood at 151-3 in January, 
indicating that the underlying trend in dollar purchasing stood rather more 
than 50 p.c. higher than during the 5-year period preceding the outbreak of 
war. Since these figures are based on the dollar volume of business rather than 
the quantity of goods purchased, part of the increase must, of course, be attri- 
buted to higher prices. The retail price index for January, 1942, was about 
20 p.c. higher than the average during the five-year period between 1935 and 
1939. Although the price indexes and indexes of dollar sales are not strictly 
comparable, the price indexes serve to give some indication of the extent to 
which the increase of the dollar volume of retail business represents higher 
price levels. 

Wholesale trade was at a high level during the first month of the year, the 
dollar sales for the nine lines of business for which figures are available averaging 
25 p.c. above the corresponding period a year ago. The January index of sales 
was 132-2 compared with 137-4 for December and 106-2 for January, 1941. 
A pronounced increase of 78 p.c. in dollar sales of footwear forms an outstand- 
ing feature of the January results, and compares with a similar percentage in- 
crease for the retail shoe trade. Inventories carried by wholesalers were valued 
at 17 p.c. higher at the end of January this year compared with last. 
Transportation 

Railway freight movement dropped off somewhat in the second month of 
the year. The total was 248,549 cars against 271,946. The distribution of 
commodities during the first ten weeks of the present year amounted to 607,252 
cars against 528,602 in the same period of 1941. Nine of the eleven commodity 
groups recorded increase over the same period of last year. The exceptions were

coke and other "forest products" which showed minor decline. The greatest 
increase of 25,600 cars was shown in the miscellaneous division. The grain 
movement was nearly 75,000 cars against 56,600 in the same period last year, 
a gain of 18,380 cars. Considerable gain was also shown in the movement of 
pulp and paper, ore and pulpwood. 

The gross earnings of the two large railway systems reached the highest 
level on record, the amount of $87-8 million exceeding a year ago by nearly 
$18 million or 25-5 p.c. The previous maximum for the first two months of the 
year was $75-8 million recorded in 1929, this figure being exceeded this year by 
about 15-8 p.c. The combined gross for the month of February at $43-2 
million exceeded a year ago by $8-8 million or 25-6 p.c. 

Employment 

The recession in employment at the beginning of the year was on a scale 
decidedly below normal, the number of persons laid off and the percentage 
decline being the smallest on record for the period. The index was 165-8 on 
January 1st, as compared with 134-2 on the same date of 1941, previously the 
maximum for January. The seasonally adjusted index showed an advance, 
rising from 164-8 on December 1st, to 172-3 on the date under review. The 
advance in employment in manufacturing as a result of the war, has, for obvious 
reasons, been greater than that in the other industries. The staffs of manu- 
facturers furnishing statistics to the Bureau were increased from September 1, 
1939, to the latest date available, by approximately 373,000. The index number 
of employment in factories consequently rose by over 62 p.c. in the twenty- 
eight months. This gain greatly exceeds that of 38-6 p.c, the computation for 
all industries. The index for the durable goods industries rose by more than 
112 p.c. to 213-3. The number of persons employed in this division constituted 
59 p.c. of all those reported in manufacturing at January 1, 1942, a proportion 
greatly in excess of 40 p.c. engaged in the durable goods industries at the out- 
break of hostilities. 

Finance 

Life insurance in force in Canada at the end of 1941 amounted to $7-3 
billion, an increase of 4-8 p.c. over the corresponding amount of $6,975 million 
at the end of the preceding year. Ordinary insurance amounted to $5,499 
million, industrial insurance, $993-1 million and group insurance, $819-3 million. 
Canadian companies issued $4,836 million of the total insurance in force and 
British and United States companies $2,475 million. The amount of new in- 
surance policies made effective during 1941 was $686-5 million, an increase of 
16-3 p.c. over the amount of $590-2 million for the preceding year. 

The amount of cheques cashed by the branch banks was $2,893 million in 
February against $2,540 million in the same month last year. Important gains 
were shown in each of the five economic areas. The total for Ontario rose 
from $1,218 million to $1,344 million, and the dollar volume of business in 
Quebec was $825-8 million against $714-5 million. 

The total revenue of the Dominion Government in the eleven months from 
April to February, inclusive, was $1,253 million. The comparable amount for 
the preceding fiscal year was $733-8 million. Marked gains were shown in 
income and excise taxes. The collection of income taxes rose from $230 million 
to $535-8 million. The amount of excise taxes collected was $402-4 million 
against $243-7 million in the same period of the fiscal year of 1940-1941. Ordin- 
ary expenditure rose from $329 million to $355 million, but the important 
increase in disbursements was for war purposes. The total for the first eleven 
months of the present fiscal year was $1,130-3 million against $647-7 million. 
The grand total of expenditures rose from $1,026 million to nearly $1,528 
million.

REVUE MENSUELLE DE LA SITUATION ECONOMIQUE 

Vol. XVIII OTTAWA, MARS 1942 N° 3 

Statisticibn suppleant du Dominion: S. A. Cudmore, M.A. (Oxon.), F.S.S., F.R.S.C. 
Chef, Branche de la Statistique Generale: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 



SITUATION ECONOMIQUE EN FEVRIER 

Quatre des facteurs economiques majeurs indiquant la situation generale au Canada laissent 
voir des gains en fevrier comparativement au mois precedent. Les actions ordinaires baissent 
encore, mais les fluctuations depuis mai 1940 sont relativement peu importantes. Les operations 
speculatives se maintiennent egalement a bas niveau. 

Les depots bancaires augmentent considerablement au debut de fevrier. La somme des 
depots du Gouvernement et des particuliers atteint une nouvelle cime dans l'histoire. L'avance 
se poursuit depuis les premiers mois de 1934 et l'augmentation est marquee depuis le declenche- 
ment des hostilites. Le marche des obligations est paisible les premieres semaines de fevrier et 
les prix demeurent stables, renetant Tinfluence du deuxieme emprunt de la victoire. La reponse 
d6passe toutes les previsions et les souscriptions excedent $979,000,000. On s'attend que le 
total augmente encore avec les derniers rapports. L'objectif minimum etait de $600,000,000. 
II y a 1,500,000 souscripteurs, ce qui est un nouveau record. Du total, $827,000,000 sont 
souscrits en especes et $152,000,000 servent a la conversion d'emissions federates echues. 

Prix 

L'indice des prix des matieres premieres industrielles atteint en fevrier une moyenne un peu 
plus forte qu'au cours du mois precedent. La moyenne de l'indice est de 92 • 8 les quatre premieres 
semaines du mois sous revue, comparativement a 92-4 le premier mois de l'annee. En fevrier 
1941 l'indice se placait a 81-2. Une hausse autorisee des prix de certains produits de l'acier est 
la principale cause de cette avance. 

Les produits de la ferme canadienne continuent de monter graduellement, de 78-0 le 30 Jan- 
vier a 78 • 6 le 27 fevrier. Les produits animaux, a 102 • 6 le 27 fevrier, excedent de 1 • 3 point le 
niveau de la fin de Janvier par suite de la hausse des peaux de vache principalement. L'indice 
du cout de la vie s'etablit a 115-7 au commencement de fevrier contre 115-4 au debut de l'annee. 
II est specialement interessant d'observer que l'indice du cout de la vie a decline depuis le premier 
mois ou le controle a ete applique, a 115-4 le 2 Janvier, comparativement a 115-8 le ler d6cembre, 
date ou le controle est devenu en vigueur, et a 116-3 le ler novembre. Le Conseil national du 
Travail a annonce que le boni de vie chere ne serait pas modine" en vertu du controle des gages, 
£tant donne le declin de l'indice. 

Production 

Les operations commerciales, qui avaient atteint un niveau eleve le premier mois de l'annee, 
s'accelerent encore en fevrier. L'indice avance depuis la premiere partie de 1938 et accuse une 
acceleration marquee depuis le debut de la guerre. Au cours des premiers mois de 1940 il excede 
le niveau eleve de 1929; depuis cette periode il fait un gain important. 

Agriculture 

Les stocks de ble dans les el6vateurs au Canada se placent a 455,000,000 de boisseaux la 
semaine terminee le 6 mars, en regard de 439,300,000 la meme semaine de l'an dernier. Du ler 
aout au 7 mars les expeditions s'elevent a 87,000,000 de boisseaux, comparativement a 69,400,000 
la meme periode de l'annee prfcedente. Les arrivages de ble dans les Provinces des Prairies 
s'£tablissent a 167,800,000 boisseaux contre 325,400,000 la meme periode de la campagne pre- 
c^dente. 

Bien que le taux integral des droits de douane soit applique aux betes a comes canadiennes 
entrant aux Etats-Unis en fevrier, les prix s'orientent a la hausse. Les offres de betes a cornes 
sont faibles en general et parfois il est difficile d'obtenir les approvisionnements n6cessaires 

28 



March, 1942 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 29 

Quelques-uns des gains du debut sont effaces a la fin du mois, mais il n'y a pas de declins brusques 
et les prix sont nettement plus eleves a la fin du mois qu'au commencement. Le marche des 
pores est fort dans tous les centres et les prix montent appreciablement. Les livraisons de betes 
a comes aux enclos et directement aux salaisons se chiffrent a 187,000 tetes les deux premiers 
mois de l'annee contre 152,000 Fan dernier. Stimules par un contrat du Ministere britannique 
de l'Alimentation pour 600,000,000 de livres de bacon avant octobre prochain, les arrivages de 
pores continuent d'augmenter; en Janvier et fevrier ils s'elevent a 1,087,938 tetes contre 998,648 
la meme periode de Tan dernier. 

Industrie manufacturiere 

La production manufacturiere augmente en fevrier apres ajustement saisonnier. Les 
operations de la salaison ralentissent un peu, l'indice reculant de 143 a 131. Les abatages de 
pores s'etablissent a 494,000 tetes comparativement a 588,000; une bonne partie de cette diminu- 
tion est attribuable aux tendances saisonnieres. Les exportations de saumon en boite augmen- 
ted a 13,800,000 livres contre 5,100,000 en Janvier. 

En fevrier la consommation de coton brut par les textiles se maintient a peu pres au niveau- 
eleve de Janvier. Le total est de 16,700,000 livres comparativement a 16,800,000. 

L'industrie forestiere est plus active et l'indice avance de 127-0 a 134. Les exportations 
de pulpe de bois, de madriers et planches et de bardeaux augmentent, tandis que la production de 
papier a journal diminue legerement. Les exportations de madriers et planches approchent 
129,000.000 de pieds en regard de 103,000,000. Les contrats de construction adjuges se chiffrent 
a $11,100,000 contre $12,900,000, les nouvelles entreprises etant beaucoup moins considerables 
qu'au cours de la meme periode de 1941. La production d'automobiles. y compris les vehicules 
militaires, est de 20,181 unites comparativement a 21,751. 

Commerce interieur 

Les ventes de detail en Janvier augmentent de 26 p.c. par rapport -a celles du meme mois de 
l'annee precedents L'indice est de 128-5 contre 102-3. Apres ajustement pour le nombre 
de jours ouvrables et pom 1 les variations saisonnieres, l'indice s'etablit a 151-3 en Janvier, ce qui 
indique que les achats en dollars excedent d'un peu plus de 50 p.c. ceux de la periode de cinq ans 
avant le declenchement des hostilites. Corame ces chiffres sont baseb sur le volume du commerce 
en dollars plutot que sur la quantite de marchandises vendues, une partie de 1'augmentation doit 
naturellement etre attribute a la hausse des prix. L'inaice des prix de detail en Janvier 1942 est 
d'environ 20 p.c. plus eleve que la moyenne quinquennale de 1935 a 1939. Bien que les indices 
des prix et les indices des ventes en dollars ne soient pas strictement comparables, les indices des 
prix servent a illustrer un peu jusqu'a quel point 1'augmentation du volume du commerce de 
detail en dollars represente la hausse des prix. 

lie commerce de gros touche un niveau eleve le premier mois de l'annee; les ventes en dollars 
pour les neuf genres de commerce dont les statistiques sont connues atteignent une moyenne de 
25 p.c. plus forte que durant la periode correspondante de Fan dernier. L'indice des ventes se 
place a 132-2 en Janvier, a rapprocher de 137-4 en decembre et 106-2 en Janvier 1941. Une 
augmentation prononcee de 78 p.c. dans les ventes en dollars des rharchands de chaussures en 
gros constitue une caracteristique frappante des resultats de Janvier et se compare a une aug- 
mentation proportionnelle semblable dans le commerce de chaussures au detail. La valeur des 
stocks detenus par les marchands de gros est de 17 p.c. plus considerable a la fin de Janvier cette 
annee que Fan dernier. 

Transports 

Le trafic-marchandises des chemins de fer diminue en peu le deuxieme mois de l'annee. 
Le total est de 248,549 wagons contre 271,946. La distribution des denrees au cours des dix 
premieres semaines de l'annee courante s'etablit a 607,252 wagons en regard de 528,602 la meme 
periode de 1941. Neuf des onze groupes de denrees accusent des augmentations par rapport a la 
meme periode de Fan dernier. Les exceptions sont le coke et les "autres" produits forestiers 
qui laissent voir des declins peu importants. La plus forte augmentation est celle de 25,600 
wagons pour la categorie des divers. Les chargements de grain approchent 75,000 wagons contre 
56,600 la meme periode de Fan dernier, augmentation de 18,380 wagons. De meme, les charge- 
ments de pulpe et de papier, de minerai et de bois de pulpe augmentent de beaucoup. 



30 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS March, 1942 

Les recettes brutes des deux grandes compagnies de chemin de fer atteignent leur plus haut 
niveau dans l'histoire; le total de $87,800,000 excede celui de l'an dernier par pr&s de $18,000,000 
ou de 25-5 p.c. Le maximum ant6rieur pour les deux premiers mois de l'annee 6tait celui de 
$75,800,000 en 1929, chiffre qui est d^passe cette ann6e par environ 15-8 p.c. Les recettes 
brutes globales en fevrier, a $43,200,000, sont de $8,800,000 ou 25-6 p.c. plus considerables que 
celles de l'an dernier. 

Emploiement 

La diminution de l'emploiement au debut de l'annee est nettement inferieure a la normale; 
le nombre de personnes cong6diees et le declin proportionnel sont les plus faibles dans l'histoire 
pour la periode. L'indice se place a 165-8 le ler Janvier contre 134-2 la meme date de 1941, le 
maximum anterieur pour Janvier. L'indice ajuste" pour la saison passe de 164 • 8 le ler decembre 
a 172-3 la date sous revue. L'augmentation de l'emploiement dans les manufactures par suite 
de la guerre est pour des raisons evidentes plus grande que dans les autres industries. Les em- 
ployes des manufacturiers qui fournissent des statistiques au Bureau augmentent d'environ 
373,000 du ler septembre 1939 a la derniere date connue. L'indice de l'emploiement dans les 
fabriques fait done une avance de plus de 62 p.c. durant ces vingt-huit mois. Ce gain excede de 
beaucoup celui de 38-6 p.c. observe dans toutes les industries. L'indice de l'emploiement dans 
les industries des marchandises durables avance de plus de 112 p.c. pour toucher 213-3. Le 
nombre d'employes dans cette division constitue 59 p.c. de tous les employes dans les manu- 
factures au ler Janvier 1942, proportion qui excede grandement celle de 40 p.c. d'employes dans 
les industries de marchandises durables au debut des hostility. 

Finances

The 1941 Annual Review of Employment is now available for 
distribution. This covers in considerable detail the situation in the 
Dominion as a whole, in the various economic areas, the leading 
cities and in a large number of industries. One section briefly 
describes the recent trends of employment in manufacturing in 
Canada and the United States. Another deals with the current 
statistics of earnings, giving data by provinces, for the leading cities, 
and for many industries in the economic areas and cities, as well as 
in the Dominion as a whole. The course of earnings in relation to 
the cost-of-living in the Dominion is briefly reviewed, while there is 
also a comparison of the recent course of earnings in manufacturing 
in Canada and the United States. 

The price of the Review is twenty-five cents; application for 
copies should be made to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN APRIL 

Six prominent factors indicating the trend of economic conditions averaged 
higher in April than in the preceding month. The deposit liabilities of the 
banks recorded a marked increase while other major factors showed only minor 
change. High-grade bond prices were steady, no important change having 
been shown in the last five months. Wholesale prices fluctuated within narrow 
limits very slight change having been shown in the general index since last 
November. Speculative factors including common stock prices and trading on 
the stock exchanges continued at low levels. Further acceleration in war indus- 
tries were counterbalanced in large measure by some reduction in the groups 
engaged on civilian production. The preliminary calculation recorded a minor 
gain in the index of the physical volume of business which moved up sharply 
over the standing of 136-2 in March. 

Agriculture 

Stocks of wheat were 424 • 3 million bushels in the week of May 15 against 
466 • 1 million bushels in the same week of last year. Marketings in the three 
Prairie Provinces for the forty-one weeks ended May 15, were 184-3 million 
bushels against 381-2 million in the same period of the preceding crop year. 

Cattle marketings totalled 79,608 head during April compared with 89,786 
in the same month of 1941. It should be noted, however, that at a number of 
stockyards and in the case of direct shipments to packing plants, last year's 
figures included five weeks' shipments as compared with four weeks in April of 
this year. Cattle sales during the first four months were 359,000 compared 
with 313,000 in the same four months of 1941. Deliveries of cattle were fairly 
liberal throughout the month with a good demand for export to the United 
States as well as for local slaughter. Prices moved into higher territory. The 
hog market was steady and only slight changes in prices took place from week 
to week. Hog gradings showed an appreciable advance over the same month 
a year ago amounting to 631,098 head compared with 600,676. The total for 
the first four months was 2,226,043 against 2,065,377 one year ago. 

Living costs for Canadian farm families advanced 2-1 p.c. between the fall 
of 1941 and the spring of 1942. The recent index on the base of 1935-39 stood 
at 118-4 compared with 116-7 last fall. There was an increase of 19-4 p.c. 
over the pre-war levels. Food increases influenced the living costs of farm 
families, the index showing an advance of 2-7 p.c. above the fall level. Fuel 
prices were 3-6 p.c. higher than in the fall, the East showing an increase of 4-2 
p.c. and the West of 2-7 p.c. Cold storage holdings showed minor recession 
during the month of April, the index standing at 166-3 against 167-0. Gains 
were shown in creamery butter, cheese, dressed poultry and lard after seasonal 
adjustment. Livestock marketings showed recession in April after the usual 
adjustment. 

Forestry 

The activity of the forestry industry showed recession in April. Newsprint 
production dropped from. 295,835 tons to 277,741, and the exports of shingles 
were at a lower level. Moderate gains were shown in the outward shipments of 
woodpulp and planks and boards. For the third consecutive month the apparent

total of newsprint consumption by United States publishers was less than a year 
ago. The decline was 7 p.c. compared with the recessions of 2-9 p.c. in March 
and 1-5 p.c. in February. Publishers' stocks declined during April following 
ten consecutive increases, but the reduction of some 12,300 tons was much more 
than offset by an expansion of nearly 40,000 in mill stocks with the result that the 
apparent total of North American stocks rose to 904,869 tons, an increase of 
27,584 tons over the preceding month. The total apparent consumption at 
318,063 tons compared with 334,799 tons in March. Advertising linage in 
fifty-two United States cities declined 10-2 p.c. from a year ago. The decrease 
for the first four months of the year was 7 p.c. Billings for the three major 
radio networks were 13-8 p.c. higher for the first quarter of the year. 

Manufactures 

Manufacturing operations continued at a high level in April. The release 
of tobacco showed recession, the index dropping from 173-6 to 158-5. The 
release of cigars was 767-5 million against 785-8 million. The drop in cigars 
made available was from 17-2 million to 16-0 million. Shaep and hog slaughter- 
ings were at a higher position after seasonal adjustment while some recession was 
shown in the slaughtering of cattle. The index of inspected slaughterings was 
137-5 against 142-6. The gain in dairy production was greater than normal 
for the season, a marked increase having been shown in the output of factory 
cheese. Canned salmon exports were at a much higher position. Cotton used 
by textile companies rose from 16-2 million pounds to 17-9 million. 

A further decline in the sales of motor vehicles was recorded during April 
when the total value was $2-5 million against $12-4 million in the same month 
last year. During the first four months of this year, the total value of sales was 
$10-8 million compared with $29-9 million in the same period of 1941. 

Construction 

With engineering work showing a sharp decline, being a little less than 
half the position of one year ago, construction contracts in Canada for the first 
four months of 1942 showed a rather sharp reduction from 1941, being valued at 
some $64-0 million against $88-8 million, a decline of 27-6 p.c. While the 
total for the first four months of 1942 is less than in the preceding year, it is, 
with that exception, greater than in any other year since 1931, when the standing 
was $96-3 million. 

Transportation 

The railway freight movement was considerably greater in the first twenty 
weeks of the present year than in the same period of 1941. Cars loaded were 
1,243,000 against 1,116,000 in the same period one year ago. Gains were shown 
in each of the eleven commodity groups except coke and other forest products. 
The net result was that the traffic was 127,737 cars greater than in the comparable 
period of last year. The miscellaneous commodity group showed a gain of 45,000 
cars and important increases were recorded in ore, grain and less than carload 
merchandise. 

Trade 

The department store sales in April were 10 p.c. greater than in April 1941 
and 3 p.c. greater than in March. The unadjusted index on the base of 1935-39 
totalled 144-8 for April compared with 141-1 in March and 132 in April of last 
year. Sales in the first four months of this year averaged 18 p.c. above the 
corresponding period of 1941. 

Domestic exports in April, exclusive of gold, were valued at $168-3 million 
compared with $175-5 million in the preceding month and 116-9 million in the 
same month last year. The increase over April last year was, therefore, 44 p.c. 
The total for the four months ended April was $660-9 million compared with 
$405-4 million in the same period of 1941.

May, 1942 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 7 

The net sales of securities in the international trade totalled about $1,800,- 
000 during February. Sales during the month totalled $5,275,180 compared 
with $12,354,940 in the month before and $6-2 million in the same period last 
year. Purchases from other countries were $3-5 million compared with $7-3 
million in the preceding month and $4-8 million in the same month of 1941. 

Employment 

The increase in manufacturing employment at the beginning of March was 
seasonal in character, but, with one exception, was greater than that recorded 
in any earlier March on record. As a result the seasonally corrected index 
resumed an upward movement following a slight decline in the preceding month. 
The latest figure was 199-9. At February 1 the index was 198-4 while the 
preceding maximum was that of 199-6 on January 1, 1942. The largest gains 
were those of 11,000 persons in iron and steel and 10,500 in chemicals. Other 
important additions to the personnel were reported in non-ferrous metals, lumber, 
textiles, miscellaneous products, pulp and paper and leather factories. 

Common Stocks 

An index of twenty industrials traded on the Toronto stock exchange was 
83-9 on May 21, against 80-79 one month before. Twenty industrials traded 
on the Montreal Stock Exchange averaged 56-1 against 55-3 on April 21st. 
An unofficial summary of earnings of fifty Canadian corporations for 1941, 1940 
and 1939 before and after taxes indicated that in the gross earnings fchere has 
occurred an expansion more than sufficient to offset the trebling of corporation 
taxes in comparison with pre-war levels. In earnings, before taxation, aggregate 
results for 1941 for forty-eight companies, exclusive of transportation companies, 
exceeded 1940 by 17 p.c. The results for 1939 were surpassed by forty-seven p.c. 
After taxes, the gains were respectively 3 p.c. and 2 p.c. 

Banking 

Current loans at the end of March were $1,213 million against $1,055 
million one month earlier. The standing in 1941 was $1,015 million. The sum 
of four classes of deposits at the latest available date was $3,304-9 million. At 
the end of February the total was $3,181-0 million. Considerable gain was 
shown over the same date of 1941. Notes in the hands of the public at the 
end of March were $480-9 million against $482-5 million at the end of February. 
These totals are arrived at by deducting from the circulation of Bank of Canada 
and chartered bank notes the note holdings of the chartered banks. Bank 
clearings for thirty-three cities amounted to $500-1 million in the week ended 
May 21st compared with $422-6 million in the same week of last year, repre- 
senting an increase of $77-4 million or 18 p.c. 

Dominion Finance 

Total Dominion Government expenditures in April, the first month of the 
new fiscal year, were $247-5 million compared with receipts of $170-8 million. 
During April 1941 the totals were $71-6 million and $78-5 million, respectively. 
Total non-war expenditures were practically even with the same month last year 
being $25-1 million compared with $25-0 million. The war expenditures during 
the month, however, were $142-2 million compared with $46-3 million in April 
1941. In addition there was an expenditure last month of $80 million on the 
United Kingdom War Financing Act, an outlay for which there was no compar- 
able expenditure in April 1941. 

Tenders were accepted on May 14 for the full amount of $45 million Dom- 
inion of Canada Treasury Bills to August 14, 1942. Average discount price of 
the accepted bids was 99-86509, the average yield having been -542 p.c.

REVUE MENSUELLE DE LA SITUATION ECONOMIQUE 

Vol. XVII OTTAWA, MAI 1942 N° 5 

Statisticien suppleant du Dominion: S. A. Cudmore, M.A. (Oxon.), F.S.S., F.R.S.C. 
Chef, Branche des Statistiques Economiques: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 

SITUATION fiCONOMIQUE EN AVRIL 

La moyenne des six facteurs majeurs tracant 1' orientation de la situation economique est 
plus elevee en avril qu'au cours du mois precedent. Les depots bancaires augmentent d'une 
facon marquee, tandis que les autres principaux facteurs n'offrent que de legers changements. 
Les obligations de tout repos sont stables et n'afhchent aucune fluctuation importante depuis les 
cinq derniers mois. Les prix de gros oscillent etroitement et leur indice general varie tres peu 
depuis novembre dernier. Les facteurs speculatifs, comprenant les actions ordinaires et les ope- 
rations boursieres, continuent d'etre a bas niveau. Une nouvelle expansion des industries de 
guerre est contre-balancee dans une large mesure par une certaine contraction dans les groupes 
de la production civile. Les calculs preliminaires laissent voir que l'indice du volume physique 
des affaires fait une legere avance en regard de celui de 136 • 2 en mars. 

Agriculture 

Les stocks de ble se placent a 424,300,000 boisseaux la semaine du 15 mai, en regard de 
466,100,000 la meme semaine de l'an dernier. Les arrivages dans les Provinces des Prairies 
s'etablissent a 184,300,000 boisseaux durant les quarante et une semaine terminees le 15 mai, 
comparativement a 381,200,000 la meme periode de la campagne precedente. 

Les arrivages de betes a cornes se chiffrent a 79,608 tetes en avril contre 89,786 le meme mois 
de 1941. II faut toutefois remarquer qu'a un certain nombre d'enclos et dans le cas des expe- 
ditions directes aux salaisons les chiffres de Fan dernier portaient sur les expeditions de cinq 
semaines comparativement a quatre semaines en avril cette annee. Les ventes de betes a cornes 
pendant les quatre premiers mois s'elevent a 359,000 tetes en regard de 313,000 les quatre memes 
mois de 1941. Les livraisons de betes a cornes sont assez abondantes pendant tout le mois, et 
la demande est bonne pour exportation aux Etats-Unis et pour abatage local. Les prix gagnent 
du terrain. Le marche du pore est stable et les prix ne changent que legerement d'une semaine 
a l'autre. Le classement des pores accuse une augmentation appreciable par rapport au meme 
mois de l'an dernier, soit 631,098 tetes contre 600,676. Le total des quatre premiers mois est de 
2,226,043 tetes comparativement a 2,065,377 l'an dernier. 

Le cout de la vie sur la ferme canadienne augmente de 2- 1 p.c. entre l'automne de 1941 et le 
printemps de 1942. Le recent indice, sur la base de 1935-39, s'etablit a 118-4 comparativement 
a 116-7 l'automne dernier. La hausse est de 19-4 p.c. en regard du niveau d'avant-guerre. 
L'indice des aliments fait un gain de 2-7 p.c. sur celui de l'automne dernier, influencant le cout 
de la vie sur la ferme. Le combustible est de 3-6 p.c. plus cher qu'a l'automne; dans l'Est il 
augmente de 4 • 2 p.c. et dans l'Ouest, de 2 • 7 p.c. Les stocks des entrepots frigorifiques diminuent 
un peu en avril et l'indice se place a 166-3 contre 167 0. Les stocks de beurre de cremerie, de 
from age, de volaille habillee et de saindoux augmentent apres ajustement saisonnier. Les 
arrivages de bestiaux diminuent en avril apres l'ajustement habituel. 

Industrie forestiere 

L'activite de l'industrie forestiere se ralentit en avril. La production de papier a journal 
decline de 295,835 tonnes a 227,741 et les exportations de bardeaux sont moins considerables. 
Les expeditions de pulpe de bois et de madriers et planches augmentent modcr^ment. La con- 
sommation apparente de papier a journal par les editeurs des Etats-Unis est plus faible que celle 
de Fan dernier pour le troisieme mois consecutif. La diminution est de 7 p.c. comparativement 
a celles de 2-9 p.c. en mars et de 1-5 p.c. en fevrier. Les stocks des editeurs declinent en avril 
apres des augmentations pendant dix mois consecutif s, mais la diminution d'environ 12,300 tonnes 
est plus que neutralisee par une augmentation de pres de 40,000 tonnes dans les stocks des 
moulins; il en resulte que les stocks apparents de FAmcrique du Nord passent a 904, S69 tonnes, 

28 






Mai 1942 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS 29 

augmentation de 27,584 tonnes sur ceux du mois precedent. La consommation apparente, a 
318,063 tonnes, se compare a celle de 334,799 tonnes en mars. Le nombre de lignes d'annonces 
dans cinquante-deux cites americaines diminue de 10-2 p.c. en regard de l'an dernier. La dimi- 
nution est de 7 p.c. durant les quatre premiers mois de l'annee. La publicite sur les trois grands 
reseaux radiophoniques est de 13-8 p.c. plus considerable le premier trimestre de l'annee. 

Manufactures 

Les operations manufacturieres continuent de se maintenir a un niveau eleve en avril. Les 
dedouanements de tabac diminuent et l'indice decline de 173-6 a 158-5. Les dedouanements de 
cigarettes se chiffrent a 767,500,000 comparativement a 785,800,000. Les dedouanements de 
cigares diminuent de 17,200,000 a 16,000,000. Les abatages de moutons et de pores augmentent 
apres ajustement saisonnier, tandis que les abatages de betes a cornes diminuent un peu. L'indice 
des abatages inspected s'etablit a 137-5 contre 142-6. L'augmentation de la production laitiere 
est plus que normale pour la saison, la production de fromage de fabrique laissant voir une aug- 
mentation marquee. Les exportations de saumon en boite sont beaucoup plus considerables. 
La consommation de coton par l'industrie textile passe de 16,200,000 tonnes a 17,900,000. 

Les ventes de vehicules automobiles diminuent encore en avril, alors que la valeur globale 
est de $2,500,000 comparativement a $12,400,000 le meme mois de l'an dernier. Au cours des 
quatre premiers mois de cette annee la valeur totale des ventes est de $10,800,000 en regard de 
$29,900,000 la meme periode de 1941. 

Construction 

Comme les travaux de genie sont un peu moins de la moitie ce qu'ils etaient l'an dernier, 
les contrats de construction au Canada durant les quatre premiers mois de 1942 diminuent encore 
brusquement comparativement a ceux de 1940; ils sont evalues a environ $64,000,000 contre 
$88,800,000, declin de 27-6 p.c. Bien que le total des quatre premiers mois de 1942 soit plus 
faible que celui de l'annee precedente, il est, sauf cette exception, plus fort qu'en toute autre 
annee depuis 1931, alors qu'il s'etablissait a $96,300,000. 

Transports 

Le trafic-marchandises des chemins de fer au cours des vingt premieres semaines de l'annee 
courarite est beaucoup plus considerable que celui de la meme periode de 1941. Les chargements 
s'elevent a 1,243,000 wagons contre 1,116,000 la meme periode de l'an dernier. II y a des aug- 
mentations pour chacun des onze groupes de denrees excepte "coke" et "autres produits fores- 
tiers." II en resulte que les chargements sont de 127,737 wagons plus considerables que ceux 
de la periode comparable de Fan dernier. Le groupe "denrees diverses" laisse voir une aug- 
mentation de 45,000 wagons; le minerai, le grain et les marchandises par lots de moins d'un wagon

30 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS Mai 1942 

Les ventes nettes de valeurs mobilieres dans le commerce international se chiffrent a environ 
$1,800,000,000 en fevrier. Les ventes du mois s'elevent a $5,275,180, a rapprocher de $12,354,940 
le mois precedent et $6,200,000 le meme mois de Tan dernier. Les achats d'autres pays s'etablis- 
sent a $3,500,000, en regard de $7,300,000 le mois precedent et $4,800,000 le meme mois de 1941. 

Emploiement 

L'augmentation de Femploiement manufacturier au debut de mars revet un caractere 
saisonnier; mais, sauf une exception, elle est plus forte qu'en tout mois de mars anterieur. II 
s'ensuit que Findice corrige pour la saison reprend son ascension apres avoir retrograde legerement 
le mois precedent. Le dernier chiffre est de 199-9. Le ler fevrier Findice se placait a 198-4, 
alors que le maximum precedent etait celui de 199-6 le ler Janvier 1942. Les plus grandes aug- 
mentations sont celles de 11,000 personnes dans le groupe du fer et de Facier et de 10,500 dans 
le groupe des produits chimiques. Les autres additions importantes aux effectifs se rencontrent 
dans les groupes des metaux non feneux, du bois d'ceuvre, des textiles, des produits divers, de 
pulpe et papier et des fabriques de cuir. 

Actions ordinaires 

L'indice de vingt titres industriels negocies a la bourse de Toronto se place a 83-9 le 21 mai 
contre 80-79 le mois precedent. La moyenne de vingt titres negocies a la bourse de Montreal 
est de 56-1 comparativement a 55-3 le 21 avril. Un resume officieux des gains de cinquante 
corporations canadiennes en 1941, 1940 et 1939, avant et apres deduction des taxes, indique que 
les gains bruts laissent voir une augmentation plus que suffisante pour neutraliser le triplement 
des taxes sur les corporations comparativement aux niveaux d'avant-guerre. Avant deduction 
des taxes, les gains de quarante-huit compagnies en 1941, a Fexclusion des transports, excedent 
de 17 p.c. ceux de 1940. Les gains de 1939 sont d6passes par 47 p.c. Apres deduction des taxes, 
les gains sont respectivement de 3 et de 2 p.c. 

Banques 

A la fin de mars les prets courants s'elevent a $1,213,000,000 contre $1,055,000,000 le mois 
precedent et $1,015,000,000 a la fin de mars 1941. La somme des quatre categories de dep6ts a 
la derniere date connue est de $3,304,900,000, en regard de $3,181,000,000 a la fin de fevrier. 
L'augmentation est considerable comparativement a la meme date de 1941. Les billets entre 
les mains du public a la fin de mars s'etablissent a $480,900,000 contre $482,500,000 a la fin de 
fevrier. Ces totaux sont obtenus en soustrayant de la circulation des billets de la Banque du 
Canada et des banques a charte le volume detenu par les banques a charte. Les compensations 
bancaires en trente-trois villes se chiffrent a $500,100,000 la semaine terminer le 21 mai, a rap- 
procher de $422,600,000 la meme semaine de Fan dernier, augmentation de $77,400,000 ou de 
18 p.c. 

Finances federates 

Les depenses du Gouvernement federal en avril, premier mois de la nouvelle ann6e fiscale,

totaux etaient de $71,600,000 et $78,500,000 respectivement. Les defenses autres que pour la 
guerre sont a peu pres 6gales a celles du meme mois de Fan dernier, soit $25,100,000 contre 
$25,000,000. Toutefois, les defenses de guerre au cours du mois s'elevent a $142,300,000 com- 
parativement a $46,300,000 en avril 1941. En outre, il y a le mois dernier une ddpense de 
$80,000,000 en vertu de la loi du financement de la guerre du Royaume-Uni; il n'y a pas eu de 
depense semblable en avril 1941.

The survey of production for 1940 is now available for distri- 
bution. The report presents a record of the gross and net value of 
commodity production in Canada for the year 1940 compared with 
the preceding year. 

Six of the nine branches are concerned with primary production, 
while the remaining three are classified as secondary production. 
The industrial groups constituting primary production are as fol- 
lows: — Agriculture, forestry, fishery, trapping, mining and electric 
power. The secondary production group embraces construction, 
manufactures, n.e.s., and custom and repair. 

The report presents statistics of gross and net production for 
the nine branches for the years 1939 and 1940 with percentage 
analysis. A table is given detailing the main items in duplication 
between primary and secondary production. The main table presents 
the gross and net production for the two years in question by the 
main branches for each of the nine provinces. 

The price of the report is 25 cents. Application for copies should 
be made to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.

Chief, Business Statistics Branch: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN MAY 

The factors indicating the trend of economic conditions were without im- 
portant change in May from the level of the preceding month. Minor increases 
were shown in commodity and high-grade bond prices. The deposit liabilities 
of the chartered banks showed recession from the maximum reached in the 
preceding month. Business operations as measured by the index of the physical 
volume of business showed recession in May, but the production of munitions 
and war supplies recorded marked expansion. The curtailment in operations of 
industries engaged on the production of civilian goods was mainly due to short- 
ages of raw materials and to the difficulty in obtaining adequate working forces. 
Slight gains were shown in common stock prices and the volume of security 
trading on the stock exchanges. The betterment in this respect was of a rela- 
tively slight character and the speculative factors remained at low levels charac- 
teristic of the last two years. 

Agriculture 

Wheat stocks were 410-9 million bushels in the week of June 12th com- 
paring with 469-1 million bushels in the same week of 1941. Wheat receipts 
in the Prairie Provinces during the crop year to date were 193-8 million bushels 
against 413 • 1 million in the same period of the preceding crop year. Customs 
exports during May were 26 • 9 million bushels. The total for the first ten months 
of the crop year was 146-0 million bushels, and the export of wheat flour 
during the ten months was 8-8 million barrels. 

Cash income from the sale of farm products in the Prairie Provinces at 
approximately $69 million for the first three months of 1942 was $6 million 
higher than in the same period of 1941 and $28 million greater than that of the 
corresponding months of 1940. A decline was shown in the cash income from 
the sale of wheat due to the smaller crop harvested in the fall of 1941 and also 
because of the abnormal proportion of the 1940 crop held over in markets 
during the early months of 1941. Coarse grains, livestock and animal products 
were sold in larger amount. Income from the sale of hogs at $23 million was 
almost double that of the same period of 1941. 

It was announced about the end of May that the British Food Ministry 
had made an agreement with the Canadian Wheat Board for the purchase of 
120 million bushels of wheat in the form of futures. Total purchases by the 
British Food Ministry in 1941 amounted to 240 million bushels. The index of 
cold storage holdings on June 1st was 173-4 against 166-3. Sheep sales re- 
corded an increase in May over the preceding month, even after seasonal 
adjustment, while recessions were shown in other divisions of livestock mar- 
ketings. The net result was that the index receded from 87-0 in April to 80-9 
in the month under review. 

Forestry 

Canadian newsprint production in May showed a further recession to 
251,831 tons indicating an output ratio of 68 p.c. of capacity. The output in 
April was 277,741 tons, while the total for May, 1941, was 284.767 tons. Ship- 
ments were 14,612 tons in excess of production during May and stocks held 
by Canadian manufacturers were reduced accordingly. In the five months 
ended May, production of the Canadian newsprint industry totalled 1,415,412 
tons, an increase of 5 p.c. compared with the output in the same period of last

year. A slight increase was also shown in mill shipments. The forestry index 
based upon four important factors showed further decline, the drop having been 
from 123 to about 114. 
Mining 

The mining industry was active in May, a considerable gain having been 
shown in silver shipments. The gold receipts at the Mint receded from 413,161 
fine ounces in April to 393,710. The output of coal showed a contraseasonal 
decline from 1,512,000 tons to about 1,300,000. The Department of Lands and 
Mines of the Province of Alberta reported a Canadian production of 10,101,643 
barrels of crude petroleum of which the Alberta field alone accounted for over 
98 p.c. The Canadian production was one-fifth of that of the British Empire 
given at about 55 million barrels. 
Electric Power 

The output of central electric stations was 3,175 million kilowatt hours in 
May against 2,805 million in the same month of last year. The output in April 
was 3,083 million, considerable increases having been indicated for the month 
under review. The index in May was 146-1 compared with 144-3 in the pre- 
ceding month and 129-1 in May last year. Increases in production were noted 
in three of the five economic areas, the exceptions being the Maritimes and the 
Prairie Provinces. Continued expansion in production and sales of electric 
energy by the main public services in Quebec was shown in the report of the 
Public Service Board covering the first quarter of this year. The total gener- 
ation at 5,125 kilowatt hours was 27-3 p.c. in excess of the first quarter of 1941 
and was nearly one-third of the 17,986 million kilowatt hours generated in the 
whole of last year. The industrial sales rose 35-6 p.c, the total having been 
3,047 million kilowatt hours. Domestic service increased 8-5 p.c, while com- 
mercial purchases were up 5 • 1 p.c. 
Manufactures 

The factors indicating the trend of manufacturing production were uneven 
in May. Inspected slaughterings in meat-packing establishments showed re- 
action, each of the three main classes of livestock being at a lower position. 
The index receded about 10 points to 127-3. The slaughtering of cattle and 
calves was at a higher point in May but the increase was less than normal for 
the season. The decline in hog slaughterings was about 10,000 head to 534,102, 
the recession being contraseasonal. 

Gains in the ouput of factory cheese and creamery butter were less than 
normal for the season although the production of the latter rose from 17-0 
million pounds to 29-2 million. 

Boot and shoe production was nearly maintained in the latest month for 
which statistics are available. Operations in the Canadian cotton textile indus- 
try were at a slightly reduced scale during May. The index of bales opened 
for the month stood at 181-2 compared with 187-6 for April and 197-8 for 
March. During the month mills opened 46,541 bales of cotton, a daily average 
of 1,501 bales. This compared with 48,915 bales opened in April with a daily 
average of 1,630-5 bales. Cumulative openings for the first five months of the 
year at 240,919 bales exceeded last year's total at 224,281 bales by 7-4 p.c 
Construction 

New business in the form of contracts awarded amounted to $23 • 9 million 
against $22-5 million in the preceding month. A contraseasonal decline was 
shown in building permits in 58 cities. The total was $6-5 million against $9-1 
million in April. It was announced by the Department of Munitions and 
Supply that Wartime Housing Limited has placed contracts to the end of April 
for a total of 11,243 houses, 55 staff houses, 8 dining halls and 14 special build- 
ings. The total value of the work contracted for or comtemplated was more 
than $37 million. 
Transportation 

Carloadings in May numbered 283,434 cars against 272,934 in the preceding 
month, the index consequently moving up 2 points to 142-3. The loadings in

May last year numbered 276,157. The traffic moved during the first twenty- 
three weeks of the year ended on June 6th, amounted to 1,440,354 cars. The 
increase over the same period of 1941 was 138,473 cars. Marked increases were 
shown in the movement of forest products. Ore, miscellaneous commodities 
consisting mainly of manufactured products and grain were also shipped in 
greater volume. 

The gross earnings of the Canadian National Railways from the first of 
the year to June 14th were $151-9 million against $127-9 million one year ago, 
an increase of $24 million or 18-7 p.c. The earnings of the Canadian Pacific 
Railway Company rose from $89-7 million to $109-1 million in the same com- 
parison, an increase of $19-4 million or 21-7 p.c. 
Internal Trade 

The distribution of commodities through wholesale and retail establishments 
continued at a high level in April as compared with the same month of last year. 
The index of wholesale sales was 154-5 against 141-6 in the same month of last 
year. The standing in April of 1939, the last peace-time year, was 97-7. Although 
retail sales in Canada averaged higher in April this year than in 1941, the per- 
centage increase was considerably smaller than that recorded in March. April 
sales averaged 14 p.c. above April a year ago, the unadjusted index having been 
154-8 gainst 135-6. 
External Trade 

Canada's war-stimulated export trade rose to a new all-time maximum in 
May. The total passed the $200 million mark for the first time in Canada's 
history, reaching $234-2 million. This compares with about $94 million in 
May, 1939. After making allowance for higher prices now in effect, the volume 
of trade has more than doubled in the three years. The expansion is indicative 
of the way in which Canada's productive capacity is being mobilized for war 
purposes. 
Prices 

The general wholesale price index was 95 • 2 in May against 95-0 in the pre- 
ceding month. The standing in May last year was- 88-8 and August, 1939, 
recorded an index of 72-3 A minor advance over April was shown in crop 
and animal products, wood and paper and non-metallic minerals. 

The cost of living index advanced from 115-9 on April 1 to 116-1 at the 
beginning of the month under review. The index rose 15-2 p.c. between 
August, 1939, and May of this year. The increase in the latest month was 
due mainly to foods, although fractional gains were recorded for clothing and 
rent. Between April and May the food index moved up from 123-7 to 124-3, 
due to increases in meats ; vegetables and fruits. 
Employment 

The index of employment rose more than 2 points to 167-4 on May 1st 
against 165-2 one month before. The standing in May, 1941, was 145.5. A 
rapid increase was shown in the numbers of the working forces from May to 
December last year followed by a seasonal recession after the year-end holiday. 
The index is again advancing, having nearly reached the standing of last 
November. The advance in the index of employment in the manufacturing 
group from April to May was about 3 points to 202-3. Logging and mining 
showed recession. Gains were recorded in transportation, construction, services 
and trade. The average per capita weekly earnings paid on or about May 1st 
were $28-65 compared with $28-47 one month before. The statistics of unem- 
ployment in Canadian trade unions as at the close of April show the extent of 
the shrinkage in unemployment in Canada resulting from wartime industrial 
acceleration. The total unemployed in all occupations had declined to 3-3 p.c. 
by April last as compared with 9-6 p.c. in 1940 and 13-9 p.c. in 1939.

An estimate of Canada's national income has many important uses. As 
the best measure of economic activity, it is valuable as illustrating long-term 
progress and cyclical fluctuations. By adjusting for price changes, the volume 
of goods and services provided by the economic system is recorded from year to 
year. National income also provides a gauge for the study of public debt, 
taxation, external and internal trade, comparative standards of living, and other 
factors. The distribution of the national income by industrial and service 
groups, by income classes and by provincial origin presents interesting sidelights 
on the functioning of the economic system. An accurate measure of the national 
income is not only desirable but is fundamental to the study of most national 
economic problems. 

As a clue to the best method of measuring the national income, it is obvious 
that most payments to individuals are due to personal or capital services. Such 
remuneration is paid by business enterprises to individuals for their contribution 
to economic activity. The remuneration for capital services is regarded as 
extended to include not only current payments but savings treated as shares of 
the value of current production of commodities and services, retained by enter- 
prises for the benefit of shareholders. The sum of such income and personal earn- 
ings constitutes by far the greater part of the national income as visualized here.

NATIONAL INCOME ORIGINATING AND SALARIES AND WAGES 

Partial results of the revision in process during the last twelve months are 
presented in the table above and in the charts appearing on pages 4 and 6. 
The revision mainly entailed a change in the treatment of bond interest payments 
but refinements were made in various estimates throughout the study. 

Primary production embraces electric power, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, 
trapping, mining and six industries listed in the Survey of Production. Pro- 
cessing industries, saw milling, pulp and paper, fish curing and packing, smelting, 
cement, lime, clay products and salt are included with the primary group and 
deducted from secondary production to -avoid duplication. The secondary 
group includes construction, manufactures, n.e.s., and custom and repair. The 
next group is mainly engaged in the transport of freight and passengers and in 
the allied function of communication. The payments to individuals and enter- 
prise savings were computed wherever possible in nine industries, as follows: — 
steam railways, electric railways, water transport, road transport, civil aviation, 
storage, express, telegraphs and telephones. The computation for wholesale 
and retail trade made up the fourth main group. The finance section embraced 
banking, trust companies, stock and bond dealers, loan and mortgage, insurance 
and real estate. Net rentals whether received or imputed and mortgage interest 
paid to individuals are included in connection with the latter industry. Profes- 
sional, educational, recreational and other personal services make up the service 
group. The statistics of governmental operations will be presented at a later 
date. 

" Income Originating" consists of the positive or negative savings of enter- 
prises and direct income payments to individuals. The latter take the form of 
salaries and wages, workmen's compensation and other labour income, net 
dividends, net interest, pensions, net rentals, mortgage interest and the with- 
drawals of working proprietors. 

Primary production with related processing industries was the source of 
greater income than any other of the six major groups considered here. Second- 
ary production even after the elimination of the processing industries, was the 
largest distributor of salaries and wages. 

Definition 

The national income is defined as the net value of commodities produced 
and services rendered. 

The gross operating revenue of a considerable number of industrial and 
service groups is known from year to year by means of the surveys of the Bureau 
of Statistics. It is necessary to deduce from the gross revenues the payments 
to other groups for raw materials, fuel and miscellaneous services and make 
.provision for the maintenance of plant and equipment by depreciation reserves. 
The remainder is the net national product or the national income. 

Commodities are produced and services rendered by business enterprises 
classed as individuals, partnerships or companies. The gross operating revenues 
from the sale of the product are divided for the present purpose into (1) pay- 
ments to other industrial groups and depreciation allowances and (2) payments 
to individuals, including accruals in the form of positive or negative savings. 
The items under the former include the cost of raw materials for fabrication or 
resale, general expenses for services of transportation, advertising, banking, 
government and other producing units and depreciation allowances for the value 
of capital equipment consumed in the process of production.

REVUE MENSUELLE DE LA SITUATION ECONOMIQUE 

Vol. XVII OTTAWA, JUIN 1942 N° 6 

Statisticibn suppleant du Dominion: S. A. Cudmore, MA. (Oxon.), F.S.S., F.R.S.C. 
Chef, Branche des Statistiques Economiques: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 

LA SITUATION ECONOMIQUE EN MAI 

Les facteurs tragant rorientation de la situation economique en mai n'offrent pas de change- 
ment important en regard du niveau du mois precedent. Les denrees et les obligations de tout 
repos montent un peu. Les depots des banques a charte retrogradent du maximum atteint le 
mois precedent. Les operations commerciales, mesurees par l'indice du volume physique des 
affaires, ralentissent en mai, mais la production de munitions et de fournitures de guerre s'accelere 
d'une fagon marquee. Le ralentissement des operations des industries s'occupant de la produc- 
duction d'articles civils est principalement attribuable a la penurie de matieres premieres et a 
la difficulte d'obtenir la main-d'ceuvre adequate. Le cours des actions ordinaires et le volume 
des transactions boursieres laissent voir de legers gains. L'amelioration dans ce domaine est 
relativement faible et les facteurs speculatifs demeurent aux bas niveaux qui les caracterisent 
depuis deux ans. 

Agriculture 

Les stocks de ble se placent a 410,900,000 boisseaux la semaine du 12 juin contre 469,100,000 
la meme semaine de 1941. Les arrivages de ble dans les Provinces des Prairies depuis le com- 
mencement de la campagne s'elevent a 193,800,000 boisseaux, a rapprocher de 413,100,000 la 
meme periode de la campagne precedente. Les exportations en mai se chiffrent a 26,900,000 
boisseaux. Les exportations de ble au cours des dix premiers mois de la campagne se placent 
a 146,000,000 de boisseaux et celles de farine de ble, a 8,800,000 barils pendant la meme periode. 

Le revenu en especes provenant de la vente des produits de la ferme dans les Provinces des 
Prairies se chiffre a environ $69,000,000 le premier trimestre de 1942, soit $6,000,000 de plus que 
celui de la meme periode de 1941 et $28,000,000 de plus que celui de la periode correspondante 
de 1940. II y a un declin du revenu en especes provenant de la vente du ble par suite de la recolte 
moins abondante a l'automne de 1941 et de la proportion anormale de la reoolte de 1940 reportee 
sur les marches pendant les premiers mois de 1941. Les ventes de grains secondaires, de betail 
et de produits animaux sont plus considerables. Le revenu derive de la vente des pores, a $23,- 
000,000, est presque le double de celui de la meme periode de 1941. 

II a ete annonce vers la fin de mai que le Ministere britannique de l'Alimentation avait conclu 
un accord avec la Commission canadienne du Ble pour l'achat de 120,000,000 de boisseaux de 
ble pour livraison future. Le Ministere britannique de 1' Alimentation a achete* un total de 
240,000,000 de boisseaux en 1941. L'indice des stocks dans les entrepots frigorifiques se place a 
173-4 le ler juin contre 166-3. Les ventes de moutons augmentent en mai comparativement au 
mois pr6cedent, meme apres ajustement saisonnier, tandis que les livraisons d'autres bestiaux 
diminuent. Le resultat net est que l'indice recule de 87-0 en avril a 80-9 le mois sous revue. 

Industrie forestiere 

La production canadienne de papier a journal diminue encore en mai, soit a 251,831 tonnes, 
ce qui constitue 68 p.c. de la capacite de production. La production etait de 277,741 tonnes 
en avril cette annee et de 284,767 tonnes en mai 1941. Les expeditions excedent la production 
de 14,612 tonnes en mai et les stocks detenus par les manufacturers canadiens sont reduits en 
consequence. Durant les cinq mois termines en mai la production de l'industrie canadienne du 
papier a journal s'etablit a 1,415,412 tonnes, augmentation de 5 p.c. en regard de cclle de la meme 
periode de l'an dernier. De meme, les expeditions des moulins augmentent 16gerement. L'indice 
de la production forestiere base sur quatre facteurs importants decline encore, soit a environ 144 
comparativement a 123. 

Industrie miniere 

L'industrie miniere est active en mai, lea expeditions d'argent augmentant considerablement. 
Les arrivages d'or a la Monnaie diminuent de 413,161 onces fines en avril a 393,710. La produc-

tion de charbon laisse voir un declin hors de saison, de 1,512,000 tonnes a environ 1,300,000. Le 
Ministere des Terres et des Mines d'Alberta rapporte que la production canadienne de petrole 
brut est de 10,101,643 barils, dont 98 p.c. proviennent des champs de 1' Alberta. La production 
canadienne represente le cinquieme de celle de l'Empire Britannique qui est placee a environ 
55,000,000 de barils. 

Energie electrique 

La production des centrales electriques s'eleve a 3,175,000,000 de kilowatt-heures en mai 
contre 2,805,000,000 le meme mois de l'an dernier. En avril la production s'etablissait a 3,083,- 
000,000 de kilowatt-heures; l'augmentation est done considerable le mois sous revue. L'indice 
se place a 146- 1 en mai, comparativement a 144-3 le mois precedent et 129-1 en mai Tan dernier. 
La production augmente en trois des cinq regions economiques, les Provinces Maritimes et les 
Provinces des Prairies faisant exception. L'augmentation continue de la production et des 
ventes d'energie electrique par les principaux services publics du Quebec est indiquee dans le 
rapport de la Commission des Services Publics portant sur le premier trimestre de cette annee. 
La production globale, a 5,125,000,000 de kWh, excedent de 27-3 p.c. celle du premier trimestre 
de 1941 et elle est presdu tiers des 17,986,000,000 de kWh produits durant toute l'annee derniere. 
Les ventes industrielles s'elevent a 3,047,000,000 dekWh, augmentation de 35-6 p.c. Le service 
menager augmente de 8-5 p.c, tandis que les achats commerciaux augmentent de 5 • 1 p.c. 

Manufactures 

Les facteurs tracant l'orientation de la production manufacturiere sont diversifies en mai. 
Les abatages inspectes dimiment et chacune des trois principales categories de bestiaux est a plus 
bas niveau. L'indice perd environ dix points a 127-3. Les abatages de betes a cornes et de 
veaux sont plus considerables en mai, mais l'augmentation est moins que normale pour la saison. 
Les abatages de pores se chiffrent a 534,102 tetes, diminution de 10,000 tetes, mais le declin 
est hors de saison. 

L'augmentation de la production de fromage de fabrique et de beurre de cremerie est moins 
que normale pour la saison, bien que la production de ce dernier augmente de 17,000,000 de livres, 
a 29,200,000. 

La production de chaussures se maintient a peu pres au meme point le dernier mois ou les 
statistiques sont connues. Les operations de l'industrie cotonniere au Canada ralentissent 
un peu en mai. L'indice des balles ouvertes pendant le mois s'etablit a 181 -2, comparativement 
a 187-6 en avril et 197-8 en mars. Pendant le mois les moulins consomment 46,541 balles de 
coton, soit une moyenne quotidienne de 1,501 balles, comparativement a 48,915 balles ouvertes 
en avril et une moyenne quotidienne de 1,630-5 balles. La consommation des cinq premiers mois 
de l'annee est de 240,919 balles, soit 7-4 p.c. de plus que les 224,281 balles ouvertes l'an dernier. 

Construction 

Les nouvelles entreprises sous forme de contrats adjuges se chiffrent a $23,900,000 contre 
$22,500,000 le mois precedent. Les permis de batir en 58 villes font un declin hors de saison. 
Le total est de $6,500,000 comparativement a $9,100,000 en avril. Le Ministere des Munitions 
et Approvisionnements a annonce que le Wartime Housing Limited avait place a la fin d'avril 
des contrats pour 11,243 maisons, 55 bureaux pour le personnel, 8 refectoires et 14 edifices speciaux. 
Les travauxpour lesquels des contrats ont ete accordes ou que Ton projette ont une valeur globale 
de plus de $37,000,000. 

Transports 

Les chargements s'elevent a 283,434 wagons en mai contre 272,934 le mois precedent; en 
consequence, l'indice gagne deux points, a 142-3. En mai l'an dernier les chargements se chif- 
fraient a 276,157 wagons. Au cours des vingt-trois semaines terminees le 6 juin les chargements 
s'etablissent a 1,440,354 wagons. L'augmentation en regard de la meme periode de 1941 est 
de 138,473 wagons. Le transport de produits forestiers augmente d'une facon marquee. Le 
transport de mineral, de denrees diverses (principalement des produits manufactures) et de grain 
augmente egalement. 

Les recettes brutes du Canadien National s'elevent a $151,900,000 du premier jour de l'annee 
au 14 juin, comparativement a $127,900,000 Fan dernier, augmentation de $24,000,000 ou de 
18-7 p.c. Les recettes du Pacifique Canadien passent de $89,700,000 a $109,100,000 dans la 
meme comparaison, augmentation de $19,400,000 ou de 21 -7 p.c. 



30 MONTHLY REVIEW OF BUSINESS STATISTICS Juin 1942 

Commerce interieur 

La distribution de denrees par les etablissements de gros et de detail continue de se maintenir 
a un niveau 61eve en avril comparativement au meme mois de Fan dernier. L'indice des ventes 
de gros s'6tablit a 154-5 en regard de 141-6 le meme mois de Tan dernier et 97-7 en avril 1939, 
la derniere annee de temps de paix. Bien que les ventes de detail au Canada atteignent en avril 
une moyenne plus forte que celle de 1941, l'augmentation proportionnelle est beaucoup plus 
faible que celle constatee en mars. La moyenne des ventes en avril excede de 14 p.c. celle d'avril 
l'an dernier et l'indice non ajuste se place a 154 • 8 contre 135 • 6. 

Commerce exterieur 

Le commerce d'exportation du Canada, stimule par la guerre, atteint un maximum sans 
precedent en mai. Le total depasse les $200,000,000 pour la premiere fois dans l'histoire cana- 
dienne et se place a $234,200,000, comparativement a $94,000,000 en mai 1939. Compte tenu 
des prix eleves maintenant en vigueur, le volume du commerce a plus que double en trois ans. 
L'expansion indique la facon dont la capacite productive du Canada est mobilisee pour fins de 
guerre. 
Prix 

L'indice general des prix de gros s'etablit a 95-2 en mai comparativement a 95-0 le mois 
precedent. II se plagait a 88 • 8 en mai l'an dernier et a 72 • 3 en aout 1939. Les produits agricoles 
et animaux, les metalloi'des, le bois et le papier montent comparativement a avril. 

L'indice du cout de la vie avance de 115-9 le ler avril a 116-1 au debut du mois sous revue. 
L'indice fait un gain de 15-2 p.c. du mois d'aout 1939 au mois de mai cette annee. L'avance en 
mai est surtout attribuable aux aliments, mais le vetement et le loyer font des gains fraction- 
naires. D'avril a mai l'indice des aliments passe de 123-7 a 124-3, par suite de la hausse des 
viandes, des legumes et des fruits. 

Emploiement 

L'indice de l'emploiement gagne plus de deux points a 167-4 le ler mai contre 165-2 le mois 
precedent. En mai 1941 l'indice se plagait a 145-5. Lenombre d'employes augmente rapidementde 
mai a decembrel l'an dernier et laisse voir une diminution saisonniere apres les Fetes. L'indice avan- 
ce encore et atteint presque le niveau de novembre dernier. D'avril a mai l'indice de l'emploiement 
dans les manufactures gagne environ trois points a 202 • 3. II y a regression dans l'abatage du bois et 
les mines. Le personnel augmente dans les transports, la construction, les services et le commerce. 
Les gains hebdomadaires moyens par tete sont de $28 • 65 le ler mai ou vers cette date contre 
$28 • 47 le mois precedent. Les statistiques du chomage dans les unions ouvrieres au Canada a la 
fin d'avril revelent jusqu'a quel point le chomage a diminue' au Canada par suite de l'augmentation 
de la production industrielle en temps de guerre. Le nombre de chomeurs dans toutes les occu- 
pations diminue a 3-3 p.c. en avril dernier, a rapprocher de 9-6 p.c. en 1940 et 13-9 p.c. en 1939. 

Speculation 

L'indice general des cours des actions ordinaires se place a 62 en mai contre 61-1 le mois 
precedent. Les titres industriels gagnent 1 • 3 point a 57-9 et chaque groupe accuse des gains

sactions de titres miniers restent a peu pres inchangees.

The survey of production for 1940 is now available for distri- 
bution. The report presents a record of the gross and net value of 
commodity production in Canada for the year 1940 compared with 
the preceding year. 

Six of the nine branches are concerned with primary production, 
while the remaining three are classified as secondary production. 
The industrial groups constituting primary production are as fol- 
lows: — Agriculture, forestry, fishery, trapping, mining and electric 
power. The secondary production group embraces construction, 
manufactures, n.e.s., and custom and repair. 

The report presents statistics of gross and net production for 
the nine branches for the years 1939 and 1940 with percentage 
analysis. A table is given detailing the main items in duplication 
between primary and secondary production. The main table presents 
the gross and net production for the two years in question by the 
main branches for each of the nine provinces. 

The price of the report is 25 cents. Application for copies should 
be made to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN JUNE 

Five of the six major factors indicating the trend of economic conditions 
showed only minor changes from the preceding month. The exception was the 
deposit liabilities of the banks which receded appreciably at the beginning of the 
month. The increase in notice deposits was more than counterbalanced by 
declines in other accounts. The deposit liabilities of the banks in Canada reached 
a maximum level in the early part of the present year but the latest report 
indicates that some recession was shown during May. Minor advances were 
recorded in common stock and wholesale prices during the month under review. 
During the early months of the present year common stock prices were lower 
than at any other time since the first part of 1933. The recovery in June was 
of a decidedly minor character. Speculative trading continued at the low levels 
characteristic of the period since June 1940. High-grade bond prices were at 
a slightly lower level in June than in the preceding month but the change was 
of a slight character. Dominion bonds have remained comparatively steady 
since the first of the year, yields being lower than at any other time since the 
beginning of hostilities. 

Productive operations were well maintained in June at the high level of the 
' preceding month. Some recession in the production of civilian goods was 
offset by expansion in industries engaged on war production. Favourable 
weather in the Western grain areas justifies optimism as to the field crops of the 
present year. War production has now reached extensive proportions, many of 
the plants constructed during the last two years having entered upon operation. 
New contracts awarded by the Department of Munitions and Supply amounted 
to $95-1 million in May and a high level of new business is being placed month 
by month. Owing to activities connected with the war effort, a considerable 
number of industries are operating near to capacity levels. The freight facilities 
of the railways are being taxed to the utmost, while some concern is being felt 
as to the adequacy of the power industry to meet demands. 

Agriculture, Fisheries and Mining 

Wheat stocks in store were 404-1 million bushels in the week of July 10th 
compared with 463-4 million for the same week last year. Marketings in the 
three provinces for the forty-nine weeks ended July 10th were 204-3 million 
bushels against nearly 437 million bushels. It was announced on July 14 that 
reports from Western Canada indicated a wheat crop of about 400 million bushels, 
necessitating a considerable storing of the crop on the farms. The text of the 
International Wheat Agreement recently signed at Washington by five nations 
has been made public. The agreement provides for a relief pool of no less than 
100 million bushels to which Canada will contribute 25 million bushels, control 
of production and stocks, export control in which Canada will have 40 p.c. of the 
total export of wheat and flour by the four exporting nations, and plans for price 
control by the setting of basic minimum and maximum prices. 

June cattle deliveries to stockyards and packing plants recorded an increase 
with 92,559 marketed compared with 82,866 in the same month last year. During 
the half year marketings were 524,829 head compared with 476,488 in the same 
period of 1941. Hog gradings for the first half of the year were well above 
1941 at 3,147,709 head compared with 2,893,982. Total cheese gradings in 
Ontario and Quebec from December 1st last year to July 11, 1942, were 935,531 
boxes compared with 521,679 in the comparable period one year ago. Creamery

butter production was 41-4 million pounds against 40-5 million in the same 
month last year. The output of factory cheese was 32 • 8 million pounds against 
26 million in the same month 1941. 

The catch of sea fish was 89,230,000 pounds in May against 100,690,000 
in May last year, the catch by fisherrren from the mainland of Quebec having 
been excluded from the statistics of the recent month. The landed value in 
May was $2,698,846 against $2,077,800 in the same month last year. In view 
of the fact that a sufficient quantity of the best quality of Canadian silver fox 
skins is not at present available to fill the United States quota of 70,000 units 
each year which limits export to the higher grade of skins, the regulations have 
been amended by revoking Clause 19 respecting the grading of ranched fox 
pelts. Under the new clause the export of lower grade of furs will be permitted. 
In past years the volume of the highest grade Canadian fox skins for export has 
exceeded the quantity allowed under the quota. 

The factors indicating the trend of mineral production were mainly re- 
actionary. Gold receipts at the Mint, however, recorded an increase less than 
normal for the season. The output of coal was 1,367,563 tons against 1,299,694. 
Production of crude oil in the Turner Valley in July was cut nearly 1,000 barrels 
daily in the schedule of allowable production issued by the Alberta Petroleum 
and Natural Gas Conservation Board. Quotas for the month totalled 25,075 
barrels per day compared with 26,187 in June. The cut results from the full 
application in the north end of the field of the plan for conserving of Turner 
Valley's production submitted last winter by Dr. G. G. Brown, American 
geologist. 

Forestry 

The operations of the forestry industry were more active in June than in the 
preceding month. The output of newsprint was 242,762 tons compared with 
251,831 in the preceding month, an advance having been shown in the seasonally 
adjusted index from 94-1 to 95-4. The forestry index advanced from 113-9 
in May to 121 • 1 in the month under review. 

Manufacturing 

The factors indicating the trend of manufacturing production were uneven 
in the month under review. Flour milling production was at a lower level in 
the latest month for which statistics are available. The meat packing industry 
was more active according to the volume of inspected slaughterings. An index 
based on three classes of livestock rose from 127-3 to 134-8. Considerable 
gain was shown in the slaughterings of cattle and hogs after seasonal adjustment. 
Raw cotton used in June amounted to nearly 15 million pounds against 17-1 
million. 

Construction 

Construction contracts awarded were greater than in any other month of 
the present year even after seasonal adjustment. The total was $46-8 million 
against $23-9 million in the preceding month, the index advancing from 100-5 
to 173-4. The contracts placed in June were greater than in the same month 
of any year from 1931 to 1940. In view of the war plant expansion of last j r ear, 
contracts were $85-7 million. Of the $46-8 million placed in June, $17-9 
million were of an industrial character. The new contracts for residential build- 
ing showed a slight increase over the same month of last year. 

Transportation 

The combined Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railways' gross 
earnings for the first half of 1942 exceeded a year ago by 20-3 p.c. The total 
was $290-4 million against $241-6 million in the same period of 1941. The 
gain over the first half of 1931 was nearly $141 million or 94 • 3 p.c. The previous 
maximum for the first six months was recorded in 1929 with a total of $254 
million, the increase over which was 14 p.c. in the first six months of the present 
year. The gross revenue of the Canadian Pacific Railway at $121 million re-

corded an increase of 21-2 p.c. over the same period of last year. The gross 
revenues of the Canadian National were $169-4 million, a gain of 19-5 p.c. over 
the preceding year. 

Carloadings in June were 286,506 against 283,434 cars in the preceding 
month. After seasonal adjustment the index receded about 1 point to 141-4. 
The cumulative total for the period from the first of the year to July 11th was 
1,766,000 cars. During the same period of 1941, 1,614,000 cars were loaded, 
the increase having been nearly 153,000 cars. Declines were shown in the 
movement of grain, coke and "other forest products". The largest increase 
was shown in miscellaneous commodities, while increases in ore, pulpwood and 
merchandise l.c.L, followed in the order named. The increases in the movement 
of coal and lumber were in excess of 11,000 cars. 
Trade 

The dollar volume of retail purchasing was 12 p.c. greater in May than in 
the same month of 1941, and was 3 p.c. greater than in April. The unadjusted 
index number of sales on the base of 1935-1939 stood at 159-4 for May compared 
with 154-8 in April and 142-9 in May 1941. During the five months ended 
May, sales averaged 17-5 p.c. heavier than the corresponding period of 1941. 
The index of wholesale sales was 158-6 in May against 148-6 in the same month 
last year. The standing in April was 4 points lower than in May, the index 
having been 154-5. 
Prices 

The general wholesale price index was 95-8 in June against 95-2 in the 
preceding month. The standing in June last year was 90-1. Wholesale prices 
have fluctuated within narrow limits since last November when the index stood 
at 94-0. Fully and chiefly manufactured goods remained steady in June com- 
pared with the preceding month, while the raw and partly manufactured goods 
recorded a gain of more than 1 point from 89-4 to 90-9. Canadian farm pro- 
ducts showed an increase, the index moving up 1-3 points to 81-5. Minor 
gains were shown in the prices of field and animal products. Four of the eight 
component material groups showed no general change in June while three 
moved upward and non-metallic minerals were at a slightly lower position. 

The cost of living index advanced from 116-1 on May 1st to 116-7 on June 
1st. The index has risen 15-8 p.c. between August 1939, and June 1942. The 
gain over the preceding month was mainly occasioned by the change in the food 
index from 124 • 3 to 126-2. Lower coal prices reduced the fuel index from 112-9 
to 112-6, while home furnishings and services dropped fractionally from 118-0 
to 117-9. Rentals remained at 111-3, clothing at 119-9 and miscellaneous 
items at 107-1. 
Common Stocks 

The index of 95 industrial common stocks was 62-8 in June against 62-0 
in the preceding month. The standing in June last year was 64-0. The lowest 
point in recent years was reached in April when the standing of the index was 
61-1. Of the nine industrial groups gains were recorded in machinery and 
equipment, oils, textiles and clothing, food and allied products and building 
materials. Telephone, telegraph and power and traction stocks showed advance 
in the utility section. The index of stocks of eight banks rose from 87-4 to 
87-7. An index of twenty-five mining stocks was 53-2 in June against 51-7 in 
the preceding month. Advances were recorded by the index of the twenty-two 
golds while the index of three base metals reached a lower position. Net sales 
of securities by Canada to other countries in April were $13-8 million. It has 
only been exceeded in late years by $23 million reported in March. The value 
of stocks listed on the Montreal Stock Exchange and Curb Markets was a trifle 
higher at the end of June at $3,554 million against $3,540 million in the preceding 
month. The standing on June 30, 1941, was $3,865 million.

REVUE MENSUELLE DE LA SITUATION ECONOM1QUE 

Vol. XVII OTTAWA, JUILLET 1942 N° 7 

Statisticien du Dominion: S. A. Cudmorb, M.A. (Oxon.), F.S.S., F.R.S.C. 
Chef, Branche des Statistiques Economiques: Sydney B. Smith, M.A. 

SITUATION ECONOMIQUE EN JUIN 

Cinq des six facteurs majeurs tragant Fomentation de la situation economique ne laissent 
voir que de legers changements en regard du mois precedent. Les depots bancaires, qui diminuent 
appreciablement au debut du mois font exception. L'augmentation des depots a terme est 
plus que neutralisee par la diminution dans les autres comptes. Les depots aux banques a 
charte du Canada atteignent leur niveau maximum la premiere partie de l'annee courante, mais 
le dernier rapport indique qu'ils diminuent un peu en mai. Les actions ordinaires et les prix de 
gros montent legerement le mois sous revue. Durant les premiers mois de l'annee courante les 
actions ordinaires sont plus basses qu'en tout autre temps depuis la premiere partie de 1933. 
La reprise en juin est decidement faible. Les operations speculatives se maintiennent au bas 
niveau qui caracterise la periode depuis juin 1940. Les obligations de tout repos sont un peu 
inferieures a ce qu'elles etaient le mois precedent, mais le changement est insignifiant. Les 
obligations du Dominion sont relativement stables depuis le debut de l'annee, le rendement etant 
plus faible qu'en tout autre temps depuis le commencement des hostilites. 

En juin les operations productives se maintiennent bien au niveau eleve* du mois precedent. 
La 16gere contraction de la production d'articles civils est neutralisee par une expansion dans les 
industries de guerre. La temperature favorable dans les regions a grain de l'Ouest Justine l'op- 
timisme au sujet des grandes cultures de l'annee courante. La production de guerre a maintenant 
atteint des proportions considerables et plusieurs fabriques construites au cours des deux dernieres 
annees ont commence" a fonctionner. Les nouveaux contrats adjuges par le Ministere des Muni- 
tions et Approvisionnements se chiffrent a $95,100,000 en mai et quantite de nouveaux contrats 
sont places d'un mois a l'autre. Par suite d'activitcs relatives a l'effort de guerre, un grand 
nombre d'industries fonctionnent presque a plein rendement. Les facilites de transport de mar- 
chandises des chemins de fer sont grev6es a l'extreme, et Ton se demande avec une certaine in- 
quietude si l'industrie de l'6nergie electrique pourra faire face a la demande. 

Agriculture 

Les stocks de ble s'61event a 404,100,000 boisseaux la semaine du 10 juillet contre 463,400,000 
la meme semaine de Tan dernier. Les arrivages dans les Provinces des Prairies s'6tablissent a 
204,300,000 boisseaux au cours des quarante-neuf semaines termin6es le 10 juillet comparative- 
ment a pres de 437,000,000 l'an dernier. On a annonce le 14 juillet que les rapports de l'Ouest 
canadien indiquent que la r6colte de ble* sera d'environ 400,000,000 de boisseaux, ce qui n^cessitera 
un entreposage considerable sur les fermes. Le texte de l'accord international sur le ble, signe* 
a Washington par cinq nations, a ete rendu public. L'accord stipule une mise en commun de 
secours de 100,000,000 de boisseaux a laquelle le Canada contribuera 25,000,000 de boisseaux, le 
controle de la production et des stocks, le contr61e des exportations (la part du Canada repr6sen- 
tant 40 p.c. des exportations globales de ble* et de farine de ble* par les quatre pays exportateurs) 
et des projets de controle des prix par l'6tablissement d'un minimum et d'un maximum de base. 

Les livraisons de betes a cornes aux'enclos et aux salaisons augmentent en juin, soit a 92,559 
tetes contre 82,866 le meme mois de Pan dernier. Au cours de la premiere moitie* de l'ann6e les 
livraisons s'elevent a, 524,829 tetes contre 476,488 la meme p6riode de 1941. Les classements de 
pores durant la premiere moiti6 de l'annee sont bien superieurs a ceux de 1941, soit 3,147,709 
tetes comparativement a, 2,893,982. Le classement du fromage en Ontario et en Qu6bec s'etablit 
a 935,531 boites du ler dScembre l'an dernier au 11 juillet 1942, en regard de 521,679 la periode 
comparable de l'an dernier. La production de beurre de cr^merie s'etablit a 41,400,000 livres 
contre 40,500,000 le meme mois de l'an dernier. La production de fromage de fabrique se place 
a 32,800,000 livres comparativement a 26,000,000 le meme mois de 1941.

L'industrie forestiere est plus active en juin que durant le mois precedent. La production 
de papier a, journal s'eleve a 242,762 tonnes contre 251,831 le mois precedent et l'indice ajuste 
pour la saison avance de 94-1 a 95-4. L'indice de l'industrie forestiere passe de 113-9 en mai a 
121 • 1 le mois sous revue. 

Industrie manufacturiere 

Les facteurs tracant l'orientation de la production manufacturiere sont diversifies le mois 
sous revue. La production de la minoterie est a plus bas niveau le dernier mois ou les statistiques 
sont connues. La salaison est plus active si Ton en juge par le volume des abatages inspectes. 
L'indice base" sur trois categories de bestiaux passe de 127-3 a 134-8. Les abatages de betes a 
comes et de pores augmentent considerablement apres ajustement saisonnier. La consommation 
de coton brut en juin approche 15,000,000 de livres comparativement a 17,100,000. 

Construction 

Les contrats de construction sont plus considerables qu'en tout autre mois de l'annee courante,

qu'au cours du meme mois de toute annee de 1931 a 1940. En vue de l'expansion des usines de 
guerre l'an dernier, les contrats se sont chiffres a, $85,700,000. Des $46,800,000 de contrats

construction d'habitations augmentent legerement en regard du meme mois de l'an dernier. 

Transports 

Les recettes brutes des chemins de fer Canadien National et Canadien Pacifique au cours de la 
premiere moitie" de 1942 excedent de 20-3 p.c. celles de l'an dernier. Le total est de $290,400,000 
contre $241,600,000 la meme periode de 1941. L'augmentation en regard de la premiere moitie 
de 1931 approche $141,000,000 ou 94-3 p.c. Le maximum anteneur pour le semestre a ete 
atteint en 1929 avec un total de $254,000,000; les six premiers mois de l'annee courante ce maxi- 
mum est depasse" de 14 p.c. Les recettes brutes du Canadien Pacifique, a $121,000,000, augmentent 
de 21 -2 p.c. par rapport a celles de la meme periode de l'an dernier. Les recettes brutes du Cana-

The survey of production for 1940 is now available for distri- 
bution. The report presents a record of the gross and net value of 
commodity production in Canada for the year 1940 compared with 
the preceding year. 

Six of the nine branches are concerned with primary production, 
while the remaining three are classified as secondary production. 
The industrial groups constituting primary production are as fol- 
lows: — Agriculture, forestry, fishery, trapping, mining and electric 
power. The secondary production group embraces construction, 
manufactures, n.e.s., and custom and repair. ■ 

The report presents statistics of gross and net production for 
the nine branches for the years 1939 and 1940 with percentage 
analysis. A table is given detailing the main items in duplication 
between primary and secondary production. The main table presents 
the gross and net production for the two years in question by the 
main branches for each of the nine provinces. 

The price of the report is 25 cents. Application for copies should 
be made to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.

ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN JULY 

A majority of the major factors indicating the trend of economic conditions 
recorded advances in July over the preceding month. The index of wholesale 
prices showed an increase from 95-8 to 96- 1, reaching a higher position than at 
any other time during the present year. High-grade bond prices averaged 
slightly higher than in June. The bond market was remarkably steady during 
the first seven months of the year. The yield on high-grade bonds was lower 
than at any other time since the last world war with the exception of a few 
months in 1936 and 1939. A considerable increase was shown in the deposit 
liabilities of the chartered banks, the decline in Dominion balances being offset 
by increases in provincial, notice and demand accounts. The total of $3,118 
million at the end of May rose to $3,121 million at the beginning of the month 
under review. An index on the base of 1926 rose during the month from 160-1 
to 164-8. 

Business operations were practically maintained at the high level of June. 
The continued expansion in the output of war products was more or less counter- 
balanced by the decline in the output of a diversified list of goods for civilian 
consumption. 

Agriculture 

Crop conditions in all parts of Canada continued to be satisfactory up to 
the end of August. Western crops, according to private estimates, will be near 
record size this year with wheat production running more than 500 million 
bushels. Harvesting operations in western Canada, however, were delayed due 
to the lateness of the crop. Coarse grain cutting in Manitoba was well under 
way but wheat harvesting in Saskatchewan was not general before September 
1st. Good average yields of grain were reported for Ontario and volunteer 
help assisted greatly with the harvest. 

The stock of wheat was reported at 406 million bushels against 463 million 
bushels during the week of August 15, 1941. The carry-over of Canadian wheat 
at the end of July was 424 million bushels. On the same date of last year the 
total was 480 million contrasting with 301 million on the same date of the pre- 
ceding year. Wheat marketings in the three provinces during the crop year 
were 222-9 million bushels compared with 458-4 million received from farms in 
the preceding year. The wheat position in Canada points definitely to greater 
supplies in 1942-43 than in the crop year just closed despite a reduction of 56 
million bushels in the carry-over stocks of old wheat on July 31, 1942. 

Storage is a problem at this time and the Wheat Board survey made at the 
end of July revealed that total space available for the receipt of all grains at 
country elevators in the West amounted to only 170 million bushels, while other 
storage available totalled only 35 million bushels, making a combined figure of 
205 million bushels to take care of all grain. The probability of larger deliveries 
of oats, barley and flaxseed complicates the storage situation and in view of the 
congested situation at Fort William and Port Arthur the movement of grain 
will be slower this fall and cars will be scarce for the movement of supplies from 
country elevators. A drawback of eight cents a bushel on wheat sold for feed 
will be reviewed later when new crop grades are established on the market. The 
drawback policy was announced on August 21 by the Wartime Prices and Trade 
Board and the Agricultural Supplies Board.

The British Food Ministry hopes Canada will be able to supply the United 
Kingdom with at least 700 million pounds of ham and bacon under a new Bacon 
Agreement now being negotiated. The figure was 100,000,000 pounds above the 
agreement which expires next October. Other orders are expected for shipment 
to Alaska and to Newfoundland. Marketings of hogs were 6,216,000 in 1941 
compared with 3,246,000 in 1938. 

The Canadian production of creamery butter in July was 40-2 million 
pounds compared with 39 • 1 million in the same month last year. During the 
seven months ended July the production was 159-6 million pounds compared 
with 166-2 million in the same period of 1941. Cheese production advanced 
to 30-2 million pounds against 25 • 5 million in the same month last year, an in- 
crease of 18-7 p.c. The total during the seven months ended July recorded an 
advance of almost 50 p.c. 

Primary Production 

Production and shipments of newsprint continued to contract during July. 
Shipments to domestic consumers ran somewhat above one year ago, but declines 
were recorded in the movement to the United States and overseas consumers. 
July's operating ratio was 65-2 compared with 65-6 for June and with 80-4 a 
year ago. It was announced by the War Production Board in Washington that 
many publishing companies were carrying only minimum stocks of newsprint. 
Orders relaxing inventory restrictions expire on September 30. It was suggested 
that publishers should take advantage of the opportunity of stocking up with 
newsprint to avoid the difficulty in obtaining supplies later because of increasing 
burdens on railway transportation. The index of forestry production based on 
four factors was nearly maintained at 120-7 in July against 121-1 in the pre- 
ceding month. 

The catch of fish was estimated to value more than $3 million in June with 
the landings in the Maritimes, Magdalen Islands and British Columbia totalling, 
nearly 820,000 cwt. It was estimated that the value of the Quebec catch would 
be about $200,000. The volume was somewhat less than in June last year, but 
better prices led to a gain in value by nearly $802,000. Fishermen garnering 
the harvest of the sea are landing huge quantities of fish in spite of destructive 
storms and reduction in the supply of skilled men. 

Mineral production recorded an advance in- July over the preceding month. 
Gold receipts at the Mint were 431,435 fine ounces against 398,695. Mint 
receipts of silver were at a higher position. Coal production was 1,474,000 tons 
against 1,368,000. As the increase was contra-seasonal, the index moved up 
from 137 to 155. Permits will now be required for the export of silver in various 
forms, including ores and concentrates, metal and alloys, semi-fabricated and 
fabricated, scrap, salts and compounds. The action was taken because the in- 
creasing demand for silver here and in other countries has made it necessary to 
protect Canada's supplies of this material for her own use. It was announced 
on August 6th that negotiations in progress for some time between the Metals 
Controller and authorities in Washington looking toward production of strategic 
metals from sub-marginal Canadian deposits are making definite progress. The 
main objective is to produce more copper in Canada, but lead and zinc are also 
involved in the negotiations. The intention is to develop low-grade deposits 
which normally would not be profitable to operate under the existing wartime 
fixed prices. 

The output of electric power showed minor reaction in July from the pre- 
ceding month. The total was 2,966 million kilowatt hours against 3,043 million 
in the preceding month. The recession was partially of a seasonal character. 
The comparison with July last year was favourable, the output at that time 
having been 2,661 million kilowatt hours, an increase of about 18 p.c. During 
the first half of this year the output rose to 18-6 billion k.w.h., setting a new 
maximum, being 18-3 p.c. in excess of a year ago and 35-4 p.c, greater than the 
pre-war first half of 1939.

Transportation 

Carloadings in July numbered 293,769 against 286,506 in the preceding 
month. The corresponding movement in the same month last year was 276,829 
cars. The gross earnings of the two Canadian railways combined for the first 
seven months of this year surpasses all previous records for any similar period, 
the total rising to $345-5 million. Last year the gross revenues were $286-7 
million, an increase of nearly $59 million or 20-5 p.c. having been indicated. 
Compared with the pre-war first seven months of 1939, when the combined 
revenue was $176-9 million, the increase was $168-6 million or 95-3 p.c. Any 
surplus earnings of the Canadian National Railways in the present calendar 
year will be used to strengthen working capital. The Canadian National Rail- 
way is making substantial earnings now over all charges, that is, over the require- 
ments of the funded debt, maintenance, depreciation and retirement of equip- 
ment trust certificates as they mature. If there were no standard accounting 
practice these funds could be used to build new equipment, but 40 p.c. of the 
railway income is paid to the Dominion Government in taxes and anything 
over the standard profits which is not likely to be earned would be paid to the 
Government in some form. Over the first seven months of the year the Cana- 
dian National Railway covered that period's proportion of the system's interest 
charges 1-51 times, a margin of coverage considerably better than last year's 
1 • 26 times. A slight improvement was achieved in the operating ratio so far this 
year, the 1942 figure for the seven-month period being 77 • 4 against 77 • 8 a year ago. 

Employment 

The index of employment was 175-7 on July 1st against 157-4 on the same 
date one year ago. The gain was nearly 12 p.c. The standing in June of the 
present year was 171-7, a gain of 4 points having been indicated. Normally, 
employment is slightly higher on July 1st than at the beginning of the preceding 
month but the gain in July was considerably in excess of the seasonal move- 
ment. It was announced on August 25th that more than 250,000 persons were 
needed in war industries and the armed forces before the end of the present 
year. With less than 60,000 unemployed, Canadians face drastic curtailment 
of many of our less essential industries and occupations. Man-power advisory 
committees by industries are being set up composed of employees and manage- 
ment representatives to advise and make recommendations to the Selective 
Service directly on man-power problems affecting particular industries. The 
job of National Selective Service is to have every man and woman at the work 
which will most usefully contribute to the war effort. The registration of un- 
employed women in the 20 to 24 age group was scheduled for September 14. It 
was forecast that the registration would permit the planning for the bringing of 
women into war industries at an increasingly rapid rate. 
Finance 

The total revenue of the Dominion Government from April 1st to the end 
of July was $742 million compared with $484 million in the same period last 
year. The ordinary expenditure of the Dominion Government rose from 
$126-7 million to $178-3 million during the same interval. War expenditure, 
however, showed an increase from about $309 million to $672 million. The 
expenditure under the United Kingdom War Financing Act during the first 
four months of the present fiscal year was nearly $549 million. War expend- 
iture on the two accounts has consequently been $1,220-5 million during the 
elapsed portion of the present fiscal year against $308-9 million in the same 
period of last year. It was announced on August 11 that an issue of Dominion 
of Canada deposit certificates to the amount of $55 million due next February 9 
was sold to the chartered banks at par. The certificates bear interest at J of 1 
p.c. per year. It was also announced on August 25 that an issue of deposit 
certificates amounting to $50 million due February 23, next, was sold to the 
Banks at the same price.
